Printing the Design
Learn how to print a design to a printing device connected to your computer or to an Adobe PDF file to send to a client or to a printing company for output to a printing device.
The Purge Symbols command allows you to remove unused blocks from a design so new symbols can be placed with changes to the content, color, line type and style.
Learn to place text on a design for descriptions, notations and more. You can also copy and paste text from other applications.
Auto Symbol Label
The Auto Symbol Label command allows you to automatically place labels on or next to symbols on the design. The command works best with irrigation symbols. Landscape symbols are normally labeled using the Quantity Label command from the Landscape menu.
There are often entities on a design that are many units away from the base drawing and are difficult to locate. The Entity Locator will provide a list of each group of entities and allow you to zoom in on the locations. You can also use the command to reposition the paper behind the main drawing.
Revision clouds are used to draw attention to sections of a design during the review stage. The Revision Cloud command will allow you to draw a revision cloud made up of three or more points on the design screen. All revision cloud lines are automatically placed on the Revision Cloud layer in the Layer Manager.
