Find Duplicate Annotation 2018 App
Duplicate Annotation can easily happen and could be an issue for your construction packages or other documentation. Maybe you have multiple plan drawings showing equipment locations and the same equipment tag shows up on multiple drawings? Maybe you have a large set of wiring schematics and a field device or cable name is displayed on multiple drawings? These duplications can cause confusion in your documents and in the field for the contractors.
The Find Duplicate Annotation App can discover these issues and let you resolve them prior to issuing your packages and documents. With the Find Duplicate Annotation App you can search all opened drawings or search drawings located in folders.
The app can process hundreds of drawings quickly saving you time and money! The search results can be Copy-n-Pasted into Excel or any table; giving you a report that can be used to make corrections in your drawings as required. Or you can simply enter new values into the search results to update duplicate values as required.
Next > button click to step through the Find Duplicate Annotation wizard, specifying the drawings to search in, block attributes to process and text/mtext object to process.
Duplicate values can be updated or the report grids can be copied to the clipboard to be sent for review and correction.
