Mark drawings ready for issuing

When a drawing is ready to be released for fabrication, you can mark it ready for issuing by using the option Ready for issuing in Document manager. When there are changes in the model, the geometry of the drawings that are marked ready for issuing is updated. You can also edit the marked drawings just like any other drawings.

  1. In the Document manager, select the drawing to be marked ready for issuing.
  2. Ensure that the edit switch is active.
  3. Click the Ready for issuing column next to the drawing that you want to mark.

    You can also select this command from the context menu, or click the Mark drawing ready for issuing button at the top. When you do this, you can mark several drawings at a time.

The drawings are marked ready for issuing, and flagged with in the Ready for issuing column in Document manager. You can check who marked the drawing from the Ready for issuing by column.

If you want to cancel the marking, use the Unmark drawing ready for issuing button at the top.

Tip:

You can also mark a drawing ready for issuing by selecting the Mark drawing ready for issuing check box in the save confirmation message box, which appears when you close an unsaved drawing.

You can add in your reports the information whether the drawing is marked ready for issuing, and who has marked it using the template attributes IS_​READY_​FOR_​ISSUE and READY_​FOR_​ISSUE_​BY
