The following applies if you are using a version of the software before Update 33 and SmartPlant Markup Plus Server 2019 SP 1 or earlier. For the latest information, see Configure stamps and symbols.

Using View and Markup, you can add stamps and symbols to 2D non-Hexagon file types and to 2D Hexagon file types using markup rendition files. Stamps and symbols make it easier to conform to your company's standards. For example, you can add a Review - Acceptance stamp to a 2D DWG file during a document review process to approve changes to a drawing.

SHARED Tip For help with adding stamps and symbols to a markup layer using View and Markup, see the viewer's help. Keep in mind that the viewer's help might refer to functionality that is not available to you. For example, variable text expressions (tokens) are not available.

A stamps library (stamps.json) and a symbols library (symbols.json) are delivered with the software. These libraries deliver the most commonly used stamps and symbols. You can add or remove stamps and symbols from these libraries, customizing your experience.

What are stamps and symbols?

Stamps are commonly used in the document review process to indicate the status of an item.

Symbols are representative graphics typically placed on drawings to annotate content.

Stamps and symbols are XSP files, which is a third party proprietary file format. JSON files organize the XSP files into libraries, which are used by the Brava! Enterprise HTML Smart View Client to populate the stamps and symbols selections into the Web Client. For more information, please refer to the OpenText Brava! Enterprise Administration Guide.
