We can group these markups into Layers that function similarly to layers in CAD and BIM programs. Layers can be turned off, locked, and toggled to print or export. We can isolate specific layers and turn all layers on with single…

Our documents have flattened data that’s useful if we could place them into our Tool Chest. We can use the Snapshot tool to capture portions of our documents and use them as markups. The Snapshot tool can be used to create a rectangle around objects. If you have a polygonal object, you can use the…
