Open and Review Documents in Aconex

Use the online viewer to open a PDF document in your register directly within Aconex.

The online viewer enables you to view PDF documents in your Document Register directly in Aconex. And if you have permission to markup documents in the document register, you’ll also be able to add markups and respond to another reviewer’s markups.

After a document has been marked up in the Viewer, the Pencil icon will appear for that document. The yellow icon shows mark-up in non-PDF documents, and the red one for PDF documents. The total number of markups the document has are shown in the Number of Markups column. Note that the pencil icon only appears after a document has been marked up in the Viewer.
