To send a file:

  1. Open a file to send.

  2. Click Send or File, Send.

  3. Select one of the following:

  • eDrawings file (.edrw, .eprt, .easm). Attaches a copy of the active document saved as an eDrawings file.

  • Zip (.zip). Attaches a copy of the file as an executable (.exe) file, saved in a zip file. The recipient needs an application to unzip the file.
