Below are the notable changes to the project's Drawings tool.
Updated the Drawings tool to add a new 'More Options' shortcut menu to the . Now, when a user clicks More Options (i.e., a vertical ellipsis icon) in the project's Current Drawings page, the shortcut menu reveals the following options: Rename, Move, and Reorder Drawings.
Updated the Drawings tool so that now, newly added sets appear at the top of the sets list (both on \ the Configure Settings page and in drop-down lists). Users can still customize the list order to suit their business needs.
Updated the Drawings tool so that now, when uploading files, the File Explorer box only shows PDF files (which is the required file format).
Updated the Project level Drawings tool to give the Drawing Viewer on web a whole new look.
Navigating to the Prev/Next draing in the Drawing Viewer now takes you to the next drawing in the filtered list of drawings (i.e., when viewing a certain set, discipline, and/or using search). This also respect sthe order of the items as they are displayed on the list page as well (including custom orders). This should also apply to Next/Prev navigation on the Info page for drawings. The drop-down in the Fullscren viewer will now also respect the filter applied.
Updated the Drawings tool to add placeholder text in the 'Set Name' field when uploading drawings. Placeholder text is the greyed-out text that suggests something to type in a text field and is replaced as the user starts typing.
Added links to view drawings in the fullscreen viewer in emails forwarded from the Drawings tool (to match UX in subscription email).
This updates downloads from the Drawing Log page. When a single drawing without sketches and markup is downloaded, the drawing downloads as a single, unzipped PRF. When a drawing with markup is downloaded, the user is emailed a single, unzipped PDF with markup. Drawings with sketches are still ZIP files.
Updated the Reports tools to rename the following columns in the Custom Drawings Report: "Drawing Sketches Count" to "No. of Sketches" "Reviewed at" to "Published Date" "Drawing Revision ID" to "Drawing ID" "Created By" to "Published By" Also, the "Created At" Column has been removed.
Updated the Drawings tool to change the following on the a Drawing's show page: (1) Changed button label from "Delete" to "Delete Revision." and (2) Previously, when a user deleted a revision on the show page, the system would navigate the user back to the Drawing log, causing confusion as to whether the delete of the revision was successful or not. Now, when deleting a revision, the system redirects the user to the show page of the current revision of that drawing.
Updated the Drawings tool so that if the user is viewing the Drawings log while search parameters are in effect, the CSV and PDF exports respect those parameter.
Updated the Drawings tool so that the Drawing log's Thumbnails ordering matches the List order.
Improved performance when viewing drawings with large numbers of punch pins in Full Screen mode.
Updated the Drawings tool to fix an issue on the Review page where clicking the grey space next to 'Publish Selected' was publishing drawings. This no longer occurs.
Updated the Drawings and Specifications tools to clear the marks from the drawing/spec section checkboxes in the list page after completing a bulk edit.
Separated the loading of markup and hyperlinks from the loading of images on the Fullscreen viewer. This is expected to significantly speed up the performance of the tool.
Updated the Drawings tool to increase the default number of drawings shown per page from 700 to 150.
Updated the 'Bulk Edit' popup window to add a checkbox and date selection calendar.
Updated the Drawings tool to add the following links to the emails sent by Procore tool. Clicking either link now opens a new tab in the Fullscreen Viewer for the Spec Section Revision:
Updated the Fullscreen Viewer in the Drawings tool to change how drawings and drawing tiles load. This eliminated the "blank white page" effect that occurred just before the page fully loaded or when users zoomed/panned in the viewer.
Updated the Drawings tool to increase the size of the activation area on the full screen View buttons located at the top right side of the screen (i.e., markup buttons, information and exit, etc.).
Updated the Drawings tool to fix an issue where a linked drawings did not open in the Viewer or Markup View. This has been fixed.
Updated the Drawings tool so that the system now add a number to the end of the revision number (i.e., (1) (2), (3), (4), etc.) for consecutive duplicate revisions. It also adds backend validation to prevent future duplicate revisions from occurring.
Updated the Drawings tool to change the button label on the List page from 'View' to 'Info.'
Updated the Drawings tool to change these button labels. Changed the label on the 'Fullscreen' button to the 'Open' button, and changed the label on the 'Fullscreen/Markup' button to the 'Open in Viewer/Markup' button.
