Drawing mark up methods?

Drawing mark up methods?

Woot! Happy Friday, everybody!!


How are you doing markups on drawings?


We have tried ProductView Lite for marking up drawings, hand markups scanned in, PDF's, TIFFs... We would really like to settle on a single file type and program.


If you markup PDF's what program do you use? Adobe Acrobat is too expensive. We have tried Foxit, and PDF Converter from Nuance, what else is good?

Hi

We have used Bluebeam CAD edition for some years now.

The functionality is just excellent for both drawings (symbol template
with GT&D and
other) and manuals.

It has fair pricing 150USD and the license rules are fine - it is locked
per PC but when
you uninstall you release it again.

We currently holds 25 licenses.

I have no interest in Bluebeam

Didn't receive too many replies on this topic, but here are the ones I did get. I think we will continue to mark up PDFs with Foxit Reader, good combination of speed, price, and editing features.

We use Snagit, we print the drawing to a Snagit printer, mark up using the tools provided and then save as a PDF.






Please be sure to share your findings on this. I’m interested in this as well. I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro because I can but I have a feeling I might not be able to for much longer.



Thanks,

Marc,



We use AutoInk by Evermap, http://www.evermap.com/autoink.asp. It is relatively cheap and is very easy to use. You can also use a Bamboo pen tablet with it if you wanted.

Missed one. Sorry about that.
