Fetching a drawing from the Plant places a copy of the drawing in the project. Only one project at a time can check out a drawing, but numerous projects can fetch the same drawing.
Fetched drawings can have read-only or read/write permissions. If you want to save changes to a read/write fetched drawing into the Plant, you must check the drawing out first, apply your changes, and then check it back into the Plant.
If you are working with projects but are not connected to SmartPlant Foundation, all claims on items in that drawing are automatically released when you delete a fetched drawing from your project database.
A Workshare satellite can only fetch drawing versions from its own database by using the Fetch command in the Version History dialog box. If you want a drawing version from another project or the Plant, it must be fetched into the host project and then the satellite can use the Get Latest Version commands on the Workshare menu.
