You're on top of things.
Check out the SW file, use "Open With.." eDrawings.
Mark up to your heart's content
Save the file -not making an eDrawing document, saving it in SW format
Check the file back in.
Now wouldn't it be cool to see red line info in the SW app? ..but you can see it in your preview window or if you open it in eDrawings again.
Hmm. The preview window isn't showing the markups, and if I do right-click view/markup on the SW part file I am testing with, I can see that there are Markup comments in the Edrawings GUI, but I have to highlight the user name for the comments (markups) to show up.
Again, I'm not seeing these markups in the PDMWE Preview tab...
This one is a bit tricky to explain via typing...
In the pane above the preview window, RMB click in an area where you aren't clicking on anything in particular
Click View -> "Show Full UI in SW Preview"
Seems like this should be on by default, but it isn't. (Not available in all states, see store for details, must use PDMWE 2008)
You can use the Dispatch to automate all these operations of checkout markup and checkin and also you can create a txt file with the name of the file that have a markup inside.
