Sheet setup

Im trying to set up a file with multiple sheets and I am having a lot of trouble. I want each sheet to be a different page in my file. I am having trouble changing the sheet dimensions to the correct size so I can insert the correct block. When I change the boundaries in each sheet the original sheet lines remain in the bottom left corner. Any help with how to resolve this would be greatly appreciated.      

RE: Sheet setup

I have a very similar problem to this; when I open an ACAD generated file, the black background in sheet mode is correctly sized to the drawing border.  As soon as I change the printer/plotter or any of the paper size settings, the black background (or 'sheet lines' not sure the correct name) does exactly as you describe- they dissappear to the bottom left hand corner or if centre on page is selected, a small black square sits in the middle of the sheet.  There appears nothing in the help file to explain any of this.

And printing in monochrome does no such thing when printing to pdf!

I seem to recall similar nightmares when ACAD first came out- I had hoped all this would have been smoothed out by now- come on Dassault!
