Drawings Bulk Overlay Tool Fixes
New bulk overlay tool needs some fixes
1) output is on 8.5x11, should be on original drawing size
2) output is portrait, should be landscape
3) output is such low res as to be less than useful
Thank you for your feedback! We do plan on adding these enhancements in the future and will update this space when it has been prioritized.

This should definitelyl be prioritzed for development as it's conceptually a great idea... but not currently delivering anything useful.... We have a tender set with masses of changes... would just like to be able to print out a paper copy and review the changes slowly off the screen... but there's no way that this PDF is useful as it's impossible to read.... Just having it in landscape view would go a long way towards making this more useful but a higher res would also be helpful.

I agree; having a clear, high resolution drawing is absolutely essential when we are out in the field trying to coordinate work.

Agreeing with previous comments, it is barely usable in it's current form. Shouldn't take much to change the settings to have the output in Landscape, adjust to 11x17 page size, and make a slight uptick on the compression settings for the PNGs that it is exporting to the page. I realize that there would have to be some QA/QC testing and such that would take some time, but I can't imagine the bulk of this work taking much time at all.

This feature is not usable in the shape it's in right now. You should have just held it back until it was good enough to ship. Especially since you don't seem interested in fixing it to make it usable.

I agree that these updates would be very beneficial
can you advise how to get a clear image or pdf when overlaying one drawing on top of another. when i overlay to see the differences, the result is not very clear when i send or save an image or pdf.

Image isn't showing clear when user saves overlaid image

Compare Tool Feature -
Great idea but only outputs and 8x10 comparison sheet. It would be better utility to use if we could adjust the size. 8x10 crams alot of information onto a REALLY small page. A way to adjust the size would be wonderful! Plan size would be great.

When you choose to compare drawing sets, the email pdf file is of poor quality. You cannot view markups. User would also like to be able to adjust the layout
Brooks Williams commented
Agree with all of this. It’s not very useful as it is.
Mark Mayer commented
When using the new Drawing Set Comparison functionality, the PDF that is emailed has inadequate resolution - to the point where the PDF is basically useless. Need to increase the resolution on the PDF sent when doing a drawing set comparison.
