  2. Go to this folder:

    [installation location]\SmartPlant\Markup\Brava! Enterprise\JobProcessor\Igc.Loaders

    If you are using a version prior to SmartPlant Markup Plus 2019 Service Pack 1, the folder is: [installation location]\SmartPlant\Markup\Blazon\Blazon Enterprise\JobProcessor\Igc.Loaders.

  3. Run loaders.configuration.exe.

  4. In the tree view, click Change Value.

  5. For the PDF2dl.dll executable, set the AppendAttachments parameter to False.

  6. Delete the files in the Brava! Server dlcache folder. This prevents illegible copies cached prior to the changes from being displayed.
