Revising drawings
5.6 Revising drawings
When you revise drawings, you can attach information to them about the changes you have
made. Tekla Structures displays this information alongside the revision number or mark. The
revision date also appears in the revision table within drawings. The revision number or mark
is also shown in the Drawing List by default. Revision information can also be used in
reports.
You can revise drawings through the Drawing List or when the drawing is open. When you
revise the drawings using Add Revision Mark in an open drawing, Tekla Structures creates
marks in the drawing indicating the places where the changes have been made.
The report drawing_issue_rev.xsr shows the most recent revision dates of drawings.
To show the revision mark instead of the revision number in the Drawing List, set the
advanced option XS_SHOW_REVISION_MARK_ON_DRAWING_LIST to TRUE.

The revision number or mark is now displayed in the Drawing List. When you open the
drawing, you can see the revision information in the revision table if there is one in the
drawing.
Each drawing has its own unique revision number, but several drawings can share the
same revision mark, date, and other information. To attach the same revision information
to several drawings simultaneously, select multiple drawings from the drawing list.
