Newforma Web Viewer/Markups Overview
Use the Newforma Web Viewer to do the following:
● Create new markup sessions or edit existing markup sessions.
● Pan and zoom PDF files and image files.
● Manage layer and object visibility without knowing CAD layers or entities.
● Find text in a drawing, then list and zoom in on the text matches.
● Stamp or insert an image file as part of the markup.
Launch the Newforma Web Viewer by opening either a PDF file or an image file associated with a project item in Info Exchange. You can create a new markup session once you save any markups.
The Newforma Web Viewer does not alter the original source file. It creates a new markup session using the underlying source file as a background.
The Web Viewer has a very graphical and intuitive design to help you mark up your drawings and image files easily.
Use the tools in the toolbar to mark up images and change the styles of the objects you place on the image. Each button has a tool-tip, that is available when you place the cursor over any button to help you find the tool you need.
