SmartPlant Markup Plus Server is required to view and mark up files in the SmartPlant Foundation Web Client and in HxGN SDx. SmartPlant Markup Plus Server and Client are required to view and mark up files in the SmartPlant Foundation Desktop Client.

SmartPlant Markup Plus Client

  • SmartPlant Markup Plus with SmartPlant Foundation

    When integrated with SmartPlant Foundation, SmartPlant Markup Plus Client is connected to a document management system. Files are opened using SmartPlant Foundation. This is a typical client-server model. The client computer makes a file open request through a query to the document management system. The system simultaneously opens the file using the SmartPlant Markup Plus Client application. Dynamic navigation and hotspotting are available in addition to view, print, and markup functionality. Markups are securely stored and managed as separate markup files related to the file.

    SmartPlant Markup Plus Server is required for integration.

  • Stand-Alone SmartPlant Markup Plus

    In stand-alone mode, SmartPlant Markup Plus Client is not connected to a document management or file storage system. Standard Windows dialog boxes or UNC paths are used to locate the file for opening in the SmartPlant Markup Plus Client application. View, print, and markup functionality is available, but dynamic navigation and hotspotting is limited. An information management system is required for dynamic navigation and hotspotting. Markups are securely stored and managed as markup layers on the original file.

  • Each mode has a set of file formats that are supported. For more information, see File Formats Supported in SmartPlant Markup Plus.

  • Brava! Desktop is used to open specific file formats in SmartPlant Markup Plus and SmartPlant Foundation Desktop Client. In the viewer, click Help > Contents (CTRL+H) on the status bar. The Help file might refer to functionality that is not available to you.

SmartPlant Markup Plus Server

SmartPlant Markup Plus Server is required for integrating SmartPlant Markup Plus with SmartPlant Foundation, SmartPlant Foundation Web Client, and HxGN SDx.

SmartPlant Markup Plus Server allows access to Hexagon PPM information management solutions and provides additional utilities for the system to process, render, and store the necessary files for view, print, and markup. SmartPlant Markup Plus Server extends view, print, and markup functionality to include the most commonly used non-Hexagon PPM file formats in the process, power, and marine industries.

Key Capabilities of SmartPlant Markup Plus

SmartPlant Markup Plus provides a number of features when integrated with SmartPlant Foundation. These features work together to create a versatile application.

  • Detail File Viewer

    Displays information from an opened file as well as any applicable resource or markup files that provide annotations and comments for the opened file.

  • Thumbnail Viewer

    View and manipulate thumbnail images of files in your system or on your server.

  • Mini Overview window

    Displays a scaled-down version of any active image in a separate window. As you manipulate the image in the Detail File Viewer, you can access this complete image for comparison.

  • Markup layers

    Comment on or annotate a file without changing any of the information in that file. A markup layer works like a clear sheet over the file; you may write on it, draw on it, or attach symbols, text, audio, and video clips. All of this information is saved in one or more markup files that may be displayed or removed as you wish.

  • Many supported formats

    Allows you to view and annotate many file formats, including Hexagon PPM file formats, AutoCAD and MicroStation file formats, and Microsoft Office file formats.

  • Hotspotting

    Allows you to link a section of one file directly to another section of the same file or to another section of a different file.

  • Web accessibility

    Allows you to view files through your web browser.
