Search Text Within Drawings

Objective

To conduct a single search to locate all occurrences of specific text on drawings in the project.

Background

You might want to search through the text of all drawings in a project for occurrences of a specific term. Instead of having to manually look through each drawing individually, you can enter a keyword or phrase in the Search bar, and Procore will show a list of drawings with the search term highlighted on each drawing for easy review.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the project's Drawings tool.

  3. Click the magnifying glass icon or press ENTER or RETURN on your keyboard to initiate the search.
    Note: A list of drawings that contain the search term are revealed, and the number of results found are displayed under each drawing title. Results found within the drawing title or number are highlighted.
  4. Click Open on the drawing you want to view.
    Note: The search term is highlighted wherever it exists on the drawing for easy review. 
  5. The search panel in the viewer lists all drawings that contain the search term.

  7. Click X to exit the viewer.  
    Note: The page returns to the search results in the drawings list.
