  5. Optional: Click Download to download the comparison. 
    Note: A PNG file will be downloaded to your computer.

Bulk Compare a Drawing Set to its Previous Version

When you compare a set of drawing revisions, a PDF file containing each drawing compared to its previous version is emailed to you.

  1. Navigate to the project's Drawings tool.
  2. Click Drawing Sets.
    Note: If your project uses drawing areas, select a drawing area first. See What are Drawing Areas?
  3. Click the drawing set that contains the drawings you want to compare.
  4. Click Compare Set.
    Note: If no previous revisions exist for drawings in the set, there will not be a drawing comparison.
