Working with Spaces

Spaces are designed to enable more efficient punch list and back check operations. Set up your drawing with spaces before punching and you'll find it easier to find, sort, and report your punch markups.

Spaces allow you to designate named parts of drawings on an invisible layer. Any markups placed inside a Space can be organized based on the Space they are in.

For example, suppose you have a multiple page drawing where each page represents a floor of a building, and each floor contains many rooms. You can designate a space called "Floor 1" which encompasses the entire first floor, and inside Floor 1 you can define many individual spaces corresponding to the rooms called "Room 1," "Room 2," and so on. After your punch process is complete, the spaces will allow you to easily find and organize all the markups in a particular room or on a particular floor.
