The Layout Tracking feature enables you to auto detect the changes made to CAD Layouts. Changes such as adding, deleting, renaming, or changing a layout within CAD are detected when the layout file is checked-in to 12d Synergy.

1.1. How to Enable Layout Tracking using the 12d Synergy Administration Application

  1. In the 12d Synergy Administration application, click the System Settings> General tab.
  2. In the Filter box, enter the search word CAD.
    All the settings related to CAD are displayed.

  3. For the CAD Layout Tracking Mode setting, select one of the following value options:
    • Do not track - Ignores all the changes made to the layout in the CAD application
    • Prompt to add or remove layouts – Displays a prompt when adding or removing a layout
    • Automatically add or remove layouts - Automatically updates the changes made to the layout without displaying any prompts

1.2. Layout Tracking in Use

  1. When you close the drawing with the updated layout file in the CAD application, a prompt to check the file into 12d Synergy is displayed.
  2. Click the Yes button.
    The Layout Changes window is displayed. You can view all the layouts that are either not in 12d Synergy or have been removed from the drawing.

  3. Click the Action column against each of the layout displayed in this window and select one of the following actions for the selected layout:
    • Add layout to 12d Synergy
    • Ignore
  4. Click the OK button.
    The newly added/removed layouts will get uploaded into 12d Synergy and the changes are displayed under the Layouts tab.
