Enhanced Drawing/Markup Tools - Polygon/Polyline
Add to the drawing mark up tools. Items such as a triangle shape would be great.
Give ability to modify text boxes - i.e. get rid of outline's of box.
Give abiliy to add to tools, for instance, if I draw out a tool I want to save such as the symbol for receptacle I can do that once and save it for use later.
Thank you for your continued input. We agree this is a critical opportunity for us and we want to provide a better solution for you. Polygons are just one example of the different types of flexible markup features we want to provide
Over the years, the technology we used to build our viewing and rendering of markup within Procore has prevented us from providing these features in a scalable and performant way. We’ve been investing heavily in rewriting this technology over the last year and will continue doing so until we can provide the flexibility you need with marking up files within Procore. Thank you for your patience.

Adding a linked drawing within another drawing with a polyline area tool. In the application Bluebeam there is the ability to create a polyline area, it would be helpful if the drawing link action in procore had a polyline area or "free form" area to encompass specific areas that are polygons and not just rectangular or eliptical. if this is already possible please let me know.
Lets get going on this. You should call HCSS and try out the PLANS software. Theirs works seamlessly.

Also it would be nice to modify the hierarchy of the markups (which one shows on top of another)
And to publish de dimensions!
Guillaume Gadbois commented
Rotate and custom shape would be great

How about paint bucket command so you can highlight items faster by just select inside area & it coloring it in with adjustment for how dark or light you want it infield
Sam Foster commented
I think it would be very helpful if you have a wider toolbox of mark up items to select from. Actual construction symbols for outlets, lighting, switches to help with electrical redlines.
Contact HCSS PLANS to see how it it is done correctly. You have a good start at the objective, but like Jeff said, it might as well be microsoft paint...
Doyle Phillips commented
This tool is critical. Otherwise, the markup section is basically the same as Microsoft paint.

Procore needs to have a Polyline feature that allows the user to connect multiple lines. Individual lines should have the ability to join into a single Polyline where you could easily measure the area or circumference of that irregular shaped object. The area tool is a step in the right direction, but we rarely measure areas with a perfect rectangular shape.

Circular and irregular area calculations on the Drawings tool
Free-form Area Measurement. Other plan management software such as Plangrid, offer a "Free-form Area Tool" on the drawings, allowing users to trace any shape on the drawings to find the area. This is a VERY useful tool allowing measurement of all sorts of curved and angular shapes, and a must have for Procore to remain competitive.
Nate Hentges commented
This is a very necessary tool and disappointed that Procore has not been able to figure it out. It is a basic and heavily utilized tool within HCSS plans which we are switching from and told Procore could do all HCSS plans can.
This really needs to be at the top of the Procore list as the measuring tool is useless without it. You really should not even let your sales team say you have the tool for field use.
This tool is imperative. It is essentially useless as is because nothing in the world is a perfect square that is square to the world in the plan. Please contact me if you wish to see how others are accomplishing this.

Pour les outils de dessins, avoir la possibilité de s'accrocher sur les lignes du plan seraient bon. L'option de tenir le bouton "Shift" pour faire des lignes droites serait apprécier aussi. Si non, les outils suivant serait bon pour éviter d'utiliser d'autre logiciel :
Dessins et formes :
Cercle ou élipse
Outils de calcul :

I need way better markup tools! PLEASE!
On ipad, android, and web all three.
Making markups is far too tedious and frustrating.
I find myself constantly making markups in Blue Beam outside of procore, then re-uploading.
Designers don't finish their drawings any more, we have to finish them ouselves thru adding our own dimensions and notes as we find answers.
I need the text and arrows to show up the exact same on all three platforms.
The whole markup system needs a makeover.

Polyline dimension tool that gives dimension at each click point similar to Bluebeam or Autodesk Design Review
Marco Tonetti commented
Would also be keen to have this feature added to Procore.

A way to measure a straight line with the distance tool.
The pen has this option to draw a straight line buy holding down the "Shift Key" it would be really nice if you could hold down the " Shift Key" to get the distance tool to measure straight from the point where you start the measurement.
Tony Hart commented
More and better tools for markup in the drawings tab.
Add a way to draw a straight line from point to point
