Revisionmanager

The selected document is opened in Solid Edge revisionmanager.

Actions of the revisionmanager cannot be directly transferred to the Fast Finder database. With the help of FFSync you can do automated update of the FastFinder database for such changes. A manual selective import is possible with FFPrep.

With version 6 of FastFinder all functions of the revisionmanager should be feasible directly in FFViewer / Processing / Copies.

View and markup

The selected document is opened with Solid Edge view and markup.

The document is displayed with view and markup. It may take some time because the pcf file must be created first.
