Generates a list of documents that have not been published or have been modified and need to be published again or have been deleted since the last publish. The command is found on the SmartPlant menu in the Drawings and Reports task. You can also access the command using the Find button on the Publish Tab (Publish Dialog).
Documents must be up-to-date, and the required Discipline property must be defined in order for the documents to be available for publishing. An error message displays if one or more of the documents found by the Find Documents to Publish command do not meet this criterion. All items matching the publish criteria continue through the process. See Set properties for publishing and sharing documents for information about setting the appropriate properties. See Updating Documents for information on updating documents.
The SmartPlant > Find Documents to Publish command looks for the following:
Documents created but never published
Documents modified since their last publish
Documents deleted after being published
The command looks for documents that need to be republished in the active WBS project. For example, if Project A is the active project, the Find Documents to Publish command looks for documents in Project A only. You set the active WBS project in the Active Project box on the main toolbar. See Manage Projects.
An error message displays if you have too many unpublished documents in your model. The memory limitation is 4 GB. Make sure that most of the documents in Smart 3D are published, and run the command again.
