Layer Management


Markups are separate files that are linked to an associated document. Markups can be stored on any drive or media, making it available to other users making it an invaluable asset that greatly facilitates communication and collaboration between team members. Any viewable document can be annotated to implement collaborative content creation, change requests, ECOs, and other revision and versioning controls. CSView markup tool has Rectangles, Rounded rectangles, Ovals, Lines, Polylines, Bubbles, and Text as markup objects. The user can move, scale, rotate or edit any marked-up object. It is also possible to add hyperlinks to any markup. A text comment with frames and arrow allows team members to share ideas and highlight problem parts in the design. Multiple colors, the semi-transparent mode for backgrounds and different fill styles can be used to distinguish different markups. Furthermore, layers can be used to manage markup. Markup drawing commands utilize raster/vector snap and Ortho mode to accurately draw comments.Measure and Inspector Tools
