Mark Up a Drawing

Also available on  ios-gray-icon.jpg  android-gray-icon.jpg

 

Objective

To mark up a drawing in your project's Drawings tool.

Things to Consider 

  • Required User Permissions:
    • To add personal markups to a drawing, 'Read Only' or higher permissions on the Drawings tool.
    • To publish markups,  'Standard' or 'Admin' permissions on the Drawings tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • Any markups you add will automatically be added to your Personal layer. In order for markups to be visible to any user with permissions to view drawings on the project, you must publish your personal markups to the Published layer. Users with 'Standard' or 'Admin' permissions can publish their personal markups.
    • If you previously added markups to an existing drawing in Procore and then upload a newer revision of that same drawing, all of the markups to the previous revision will be preserved and inherited by the new drawing. You should automatically see all of the same personal and published markups on top of the new revision.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the Drawings tool.
  2. Click Open next to the drawing you're going to mark up. 
  3. Click the Markup icon in the upper right of the page. 
    Tip! Be sure you are showing your personal layer! Click Filter and make sure the Personal layer is visible.

  4. Mark up the drawing using the tools in the toolbar (detailed below).

    Note: Not all markups are able to be edited after publishing. If you want to redo a published markup, you will need to Delete the Markup and add the markup again.

Toolbar

  • Select / Multi / Lasso: Pan around the drawing by clicking and dragging on an image with the Select tool. Select multiple markups to publish, edit, resize or delete using the Multi Select or Lasso tools.

  • Pen / Highlight: Draw freehand shapes on the drawing using either Pen or Highlight. You can change the colour and thickness of the line using the Colour and Line Width options in the toolbar.
    Tip! Hold the 'Shift' button on your keyboard if you want to draw a straight line.

  • Text: Add a text box to add information or comments. Click inside the box to begin typing. You can adjust the font size by selecting a size number from the drop-down menu and you can change the colour and thickness of the line using the Colour and Line Width options in the toolbar. Click and drag the corners of the text box if you want to adjust the size of the box.

  • Distance / Area / Freehand / Calibrate: After adding a calibration to your drawing using the Calibration tool, use the other measuring tools to measure a distance, area or curved or poly shape. See Add Measurements to a Drawing.

  • Drawing: Add a square or circle to add a link to another drawing sheet to. 
    Tip! To draw a circle over the desired area, start at the upper-left corner where the edges of the left and top sides of the circle would meet. Hold the Shift key (to create a symmetrical circle), left-click and drag to the bottom right of the circle and release the left-click.

  • Pins: Click to select different pin markups to link items to specific areas of the drawing.
    Note: You will only see pin markup options for the tools that are currently enabled in the project. For example, if your organisation does not use the Co-ordination Issues Tool, you will not see the 'Issue' pin in the markup toolbar.
