Photos and videos can be added to any markup to make it more useful. Jim explains that instead of adding text to describe a markup you have added to the construction drawings, you can use the Capture tool to add an actual photo or video that clearly communicates the field conditions that are called out by your markup.
- [Voiceover] When I add one of these punch-key symbols…to a drawing, and then save the drawing back to the cloud…where everyone on my project can access it,…I'm essentially alerting one of my trades…to the fact that a repair needs to be made.…For example, when I select the WR symbol,…I'm telling my trades that the drywall needs to be repaired…in the location where I added the notation.…And I know that, because if I change to my List…or Description view, again, WR, if I drag this open,…says the drywall surface is not smooth…or it's damaged and it needs to be repaired.…
So, again, if I select that, and then I zoom in…and I add that to Locations on my drawing,…I'm telling everybody that, in these locations…where I've added the notation,…there needs to be some repairs made.…Now what would be even more useful…is to provide some additional information…as to the extent of the repairs that need to be made.…This way, the person that's coming to perform the work…would know ahead of time what they need to do.…
Now if I had a way to do that,…
