Fieldlens allows two different ways to mark up drawings. Markup and Attach and Redline Markups. We'll go into detail on each one in the lines below.

Both options offer a variety of tools like text highlighting, notes, drawing tools, shapes, stamps, clouds, images, text, etc. These tools are available from the View drawing option on the Web version.

The distinction between both is that Markup and Attach will create a NEW post including an image snapshot as an attachment with the annotations, this post can be shared with whomever the author needs to.

On the other hand, the option to create Redline Markups will publish the annotations to the current drawing version for ALL project collaborators to see*.

*Requires a Paid subscription to see Drawings.
