# Task Replace Sheet Format

Hi guys,

This week’s blog is about another challenge that is facing John.

man typing on computer

His design manager wants John to reuse all the drawing in an old project in their new project. Well this is not a problem. Just wait, but in the old project we were using the old company sheet format not the current one not just this there are about five different sheet format used in this project.

The project manager thought that it is just straight forward process and they should have the drawing out to the customers in no time. He even budget the design, drafting time and cost to ZERO.

All the eyes turned to John who was seating there smiling know that he already have the solution and he can get the job done in every short time.

What how?
