Users can even take photos, make notes, and distribute instantly.
The notable advantages include:
Mark up drawing sheets electronically instead of using highlighters and colored pens.

- Easily email RedLine files from the application.
- Store originals and copies of various revisions/markups to keep drawings clean and usable, without spending thousands on multiple sets of plans.
- Review and RedLine contracts, change orders, invoices, submittals, and any other PDFs you have in your ProContractorMX binder file.

Circle or box out sections of the document and add personal text comments or notes, or can just use fingertip and scribble as one would with a marker on paper.
- RedLine features can be edited at any time for details such as line thickness, line color, fill color, and opacity, or users can copy, add a note, remove from file, and more.
- Mark approval process documents using the 12 preloaded stamps (Approved, Void, Confidential, Draft, and more), symbols, flags, or even create custom stamp text with optional date and timestamp.
