Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up a markup layer, part of AutoCAD: Effective Annotating.
- [Instructor] We're now moving into another chapter…of the Annotating Effectively in AutoCAD course.…You'll notice we have a new drawing, which is 08_MarkUp.dwg.…We're going to be looking at marking up an AutoCAD drawing.…You may recognize the drawing…as the drawing from the previous chapter.…And, yes, I'm using the AutoCAD table,…and the little rectangle with the circles in it,…to demonstrate how you markup an AutoCAD drawing,…and annotate it, again, effectively,…when you're working with markups.…
What we're going to do first of all, as we always do,…is we set up a markup layer.…We go to the Home tab on the Ribbon,…and, again, into the Layers panel,…and you'll notice that we've got…all of the other layers available, as you can see there,…but we need to go into the Layer Properties,…and open up the Layer Properties Manager.…I'm going to click on a New Layer again here.…We're going to call it MARKUP.…What you might want to do this time…is give it a different color.…I'm going to give it maybe an orange, maybe a green.…
