    Note: You can also click Info in the drawing log next to the drawing you would like to add an item to, then click Open in Viewer / Markup in the right pane.
  4. Select the Drawing tool in the markup toolbar.
    Note: See Mark Up a Drawing.

  5. Use this tool to highlight a specific section of the drawing using either a circle or a square.
    Tip! To draw a circle over the desired link 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 on your keyboard (to create a symmetrical circle), left-click and drag to the bottom right of the circle, and release the left-click.
  6. Type the drawing number or title into the "Link a Drawing" text field to find and select the related drawing sheet.
  7. Changes are automatically saved, so you can click the X at the top of the page when you are finished.
