Whats the redline tool for?

Recommended Posts


I'm going to guess you never worked on a Drawing Board (gee i feel old asking that)

We had two waxy coloured pencil blue and red, both of which wouldn't be picked up by the printer.

Blue lines for setup or Guides.

Red for the Architect to make notes or markup changes for the team.

The Redline object is a "smart tag". It contains text that can be linked to a database worksheet. When a Redline object is placed, the author can indicate his/her initials and a note associated with the indicator. Then, when another person has "picked up" the redline, the note's mode can be "switched". That way the notes can be saved for later reference, but made invisible for the drawing set.
