The drawing review process can be very time consuming, especially when you have to send paper copies to a number of people at different locations.
The process of adding markups to a file is also commonly known as annotation, commenting or redlining. It is easy to add markup to a file with ViewCompanion. It is the perfect application to use for this process, with a number of tools available to the reviewer. The following markup tools are available:
You do no longer need to send out paper copies to get your drawings reviewed. You can instead send the file by e-mail, upload it to the Internet, or transfer using any other media, to any person that has a copy of ViewCompanion. This person may view the file on his/hers computer, do measurements and other necessary control operations. If needed, markups can be added to the drawing with the suggested changes. All markups are stored in a single file, and when the reviewer has completed his/hers work, this markup file can then be returned to you by e-mail. You will then be able look at all the markups on your own computer.
Markup XML Format
Highlight Path Tool
Each markup element can be easily identified, as both the name of the reviewer
and time when the markup was added, will be a part of the markup element.
Each element does have an active markup state that can be modified, for example to inform if the requested change has been incorporated into the original drawing.
Hyperlinks can be added to any markup element. Clicking a hyperlink associated with an element can either open another drawing in ViewCompanion, or open an Internet location using the default browser.
Markup may be included when the viewed file are printed, or converted to other formats.
You may annotate all file formats supported by ViewCompanion, including Adobe PDF, Autodesk DWF, TIFF, CALS, PLT, CGM, PNG, JPEG and more.
