Check out the brand new Document Managertool that is used for listing and managing drawings and other types of documents

With the document manager the user can, for example, reorganize, update, freeze, lock, and delete drawings.

The user can also organize file documents, such as PDF, NC, and DWG files, and drawings, in document categories, and search documents and open drawings.

Document manager is replacing drawing list from the version 2018i onward.

in 2018i.  The Document Manager fully replaces the drawing listlist of drawings that provides information about the drawings in a particular model and that is used for searching, managing, and printing the drawings

In the drawing list, the user can, for example, search, open, update, freeze, lock, and delete drawings. The drawing list can also be used to display the associations between the drawings and the parts in the model.

Drawing list is used in Tekla Structures until version 2018. See document manager.

and, in addition to matching the functionality of the Drawing list, there are a lot of improvements of things you can now do that you couldn't before.

With the Document Manager you can:

  • List and manage your native Tekla drawings and other types of  documents such as PDF files, NC files and DWG files.
  • Reorganize, freezeto prevent Tekla Structures from updating annotation objects and certain drawing view properties in a drawing when it updates the drawing as the model changes

    When a drawing is frozen, only part geometry is updated when the model changes.

    , show and hide columns easily in the new user interface, edit some of the list data directly, and organize documents and drawings in categories.
  • Use the powerful search tool, which supports wildcards and the most common search operators. You can also save your searches in custom categories.
