Viewing issue pins on exported drawings

When you export a drawing, you can choose to include the locations of any pins.

Pins show exactly where an issue is, so it’s helpful to be able to add these to a drawing when you export it to PDF.

Exported drawings show the following information:

  • The document number and title
  • The drawing thumbnail with the issue’s location highlighted
  • A zoomed-in view of the drawing with the issue pin.

Viewing pins

To add pins you have to select Location on the drawing in the Export Options window prior to running the export. Pin locations are automatically added to the drawing in the exported PDF for all issues - you don’t have to select them individually.

  1. Select all the issues you want to export.
  2. In the Export Options window, select Location on drawing.
  3. Press Export.
