Checking out a drawing places that drawing under the control of the project. No other project can check out the same drawing while your project has it checked out. The advantage of checking out rather than fetching a drawing is that only checked out drawings can have their changes reflected back in the Plant.

The software notifies you if you try to fetch a version of a drawing that you have already checked out.

When working with projects in an integrated environment, you must select No for the Enable "Keep Checked Out" on Check-In option in Options Manager.

  • After you check out a drawing to a project, the drawing will be read only in the As-Built and the following actions are not allowed:

    • Modifying drawing properties

    • Modifying the drawing or any drawing items or properties

    • Deleting the drawing

    • Updating the drawing using Drawing Manager

    • Updating the drawing using automation

  • You cannot check out a drawing to a project if it is open in the As-Built.

  • The software cannot validate a drawing in the As-Built using the Global Validation functionality if you have checked out that drawing to a project.
