Replacing Drawings

If you receive a revised drawing for a previously-created inspection project, you can replace the existing drawing in the project. Then you can capture the incremental changes between the drawings and export the project to a new ballooned PDF and inspection report.

You can only replace an entire drawing, not individual characteristics.

To replace drawings:

  1. In the existing project, click Replace Drawing (Document ribbon).
  2. In the dialog box, open the revised drawing.
  3. Click Yes or No to choose whether to compare the revised drawing to the existing drawing.
    If you click Yes, the drawings are compared, and you need to click in the Properties/Preferences PropertyManager to replace the drawing. If you click No, the drawing is replaced.
