Add Multiple Drawings to a Job

You can work with jobs that spread across multiple drawings using either matchlines or Northing/Easting world coordinates.

If you want to calculate quantities for jobs that include multiple drawings, the drawings must use either matchlines or Northing/Easting world coordinates.
  1. Optional: If needed, use the Matchline Point Manager screen to digitize reference points on existing drawings for matchlines.
  2. Add paper plans to a job and align them using matchlines on the Add New Paper Plan Using Matchlines screen.
  3. Optional: If needed, convert image files to BMP files for use in the Earthwork module.
  4. Add digital plans using matchlines on the Add New Digital Plan Using Matchlines screen.
