Copy drawing files to another location

Use the Copy Drawing Files and Copy Drawing Files - Selected commands to copy the attached drawing files to another location, so that they can be issued to the shop or field, or be printed.

To open a drawing log:

  1. On the right side of an open project management job, click Drawing Log.
  2. In the context menu, select the drawing log whose attached files you want to copy.

    Note that the All Drawing Logs option opens a drawing log that lists all drawings that you have added, so if you select that option, you can copy any drawing files regardless of the drawing log where they are stored.

Copy all drawing files in the current drawing log

  1. In the open drawing log, click the Drawing Log ribbon tab.
  2. On the menu, select Copy Drawing Files.
  3. To only copy particular drawing files, in the Copy Files Filter dialog box, select a filter type in the Type list, and click Select.
  4. In the Filter dialog box, do one of the following depending on the filter type:
    • Click the arrow buttons to move the drawings whose attached files you want to copy to the Included list.

    • Type the maximum and minimum values for the drawings whose attached files you want to copy.
  5. Click OK.
  6. In the Browse For Folder dialog box, browse to and select the folder where you want to copy the drawing files.

    The default location is the drawing default folder that has been set in the Default Directories dialog box.

  7. Click OK.

    The file-list text file opens in Microsoft Notepad, showing the drawing files that were copied to the selected location.

  8. Ensure that all necessary drawings and files are listed in the file-list text file.
  9. To close Microsoft Notepad and return to the drawing log, click the Close button (X) in the upper-right corner.
