Compare drawing views (Pro version)

When a character is changed (by the creator of the drawing), it may transpire that individual views will be moved within the page itself or even to another page. If such drawing versions are compared with one another, infra CONVERT can no longer connect these views with one another (see Functions > Drawings > Compare drawings, Apply characteristics).

With the Compare drawing views function described here, you can apply characteristics to a view, independent of the location of the view in the new version of the drawing.
