Creating Markup SummariesA markup summary is a way to publish a report of all of the markupsincluding any embedded images or videosfrom one or more PDFsmaking it much simpler to communicate and manipulate data important to large projects. A summary differs from exporting markups primarily because the data contained in the summary is formatted so that it can be read by other programs. Users can choose to create a single markup summary for multiple PDFs or individual summaries per PDF included in a batch. Multiple summaries can even be generated per Space, Author, or any other data type found in the Markups list. Summaries are highly configurable with extensive filter and sort options and users can generate custom-designed PDF reports complete with company logo or export XML and CSV summaries, making highly useful data extremely portable. Export settings can be saved to make recreating customized markup reports quick and easy. The Markup Summary dialog box appears. To change the position of a particular piece of markup data in the report, drag and drop it into the desired position. To sort the information that appears on the report, choose one or more sort options, starting with Sort by. All subsequent sort options will be labeled Then by and a new one will appear anytime one is set. Choose whether to sort each selection in Ascending or Descending order from the associated menu. Other options vary by Export as file type. Set them accordingly:. Column Headers : Select this option to add a row to the top of the CSV that contains the column names from the Markups list. This is particularly useful for grouped markupswhich will have their parent markup specified in the Parent column. Measurement Units : Select this option to add columns for the units of measure next to measurement data included in the summary. Insert Page Break per : Select this option to create page breaks according to the data selected in the associated menu. Create Spaces Cover Sheet : Select this option to include a cover sheet containing a large representation of the Space referenced before each page break. Only available when Insert Page Break per is set to Space. Style : Choose Table or Flow. Flow : In this summary style, markups are summarized one at a time, with a report-style block of information. Table : In this summary style, markups are summarized in a tabular format to more closely mimic the look of the Markups list itself. Thumbnail : Select the size of the thumbnail image for each markup shown in the summary. The thumbnail includes the markup appearance as well as the underlying PDF content if Include Page Content is selected in the region of the PDF where the markup is located. Include Page Content : Select this option to include the underlying PDF content as part of the preview area in the summary. When left unchecked, only the markup is included. Enabling this option can add to the time it takes to generate the summary significantly so if you don't need it or if your summary is taking a very long time to generate, leave it disabled. Padding : Enter the amount of surrounding context shown around the preview image included in the Markup Summary. Setting a higher value provides more surrounding context. Include Totals : Select this option to include the totals calculated by the current sort column in the Markups list on the report. This is particularly useful for easy subtotaling by subject or subcontractor. Include Absolute Hyperlinks : Select this option to include an absolute path hyperlink with each markup in the summary report that links to the markup's page in the source document. Include Capture Media Addendum : Select this option to include larger views of all images and videos embedded with Capture as an addendum to the report. This is useful when the thumbnails allowed on the summary page are too small to be effective which is common when there are multiple images or videos embedded in one or more markups. Attach Media as Linked Files : Select this option to attach images and videos embedded with Capture to the summary report as linked files. Clicking on a preview image in the Capture Media Addendum will open the image or video in the device's default viewer. The available options vary according to the summary type.

Faster, easier, more accurate: how standardised workflows help teams work together
The Markups List lives below the workspace, and is made up of columns and rows, with each row dedicated to one markup, and each column a unique classifier. There are over a dozen built in columns that can be turned on or off such as Subject, Date, Author, and Status. Users can also create custom columns that can utilize formulas specific to their workflows, assign responsibility for answering questions, or just to add a note. With the Markups List, users are able to generate streamlined PDF package summaries that make navigating lengthy PDF documents and drawings easier and faster. Navigate to the Markups List icon in the bottom left of the workspace and select it to open the Markups List. Now, navigate to the summary icon on the Markups List dashboard. Select PDF Summary. A dialogue box will open with options for generating a PDF package summary. By default the option to append and hyperlink the PDF package report will be selected, which is what we want this time, but there is an option for creating a PDF summary that is separate from the PDF document s or drawing s you are creating a summary for. From this dialogue box, you can customize the summary to your liking. The columns tab allows you to include or exclude columns in the Markups List. The Filter and Sort Tab allows you to filter and sort the column information for each markup, and gives you the option to exclude or include each individual cell in the Markups List. From this tab you can also choose how the report is sorted by. After the summary is generated it will open in your workspace and will be appended to the end of the PDF so if the PDF is one page, it will become the second page of the PDF. In the summary, each markup on the PDF will get its own summary of the information in the Markups List, and a thumbnail of the markup as it appears on the PDF. If you click on the thumbnail it will take you to the actual markup, allowing you to quickly navigate the markups on your PDF.
