QuickEye is an integrated viewer in over 75 Online Planrooms. When you are a member of one

Drawings will grab all the files which are not PDFs. You may also press Select
All or hand pick the files you want. Then press Start Download to begin.
You will see the display change as the download proceeds.
After the download is complete, you are returned to the Select Sheet dialog with

the Edit controls are enabled since you are no longer viewing an Internet Project,
which are read-only.
Now the documents are in a QuickEye project and you may view, print and measure over
them. You can also use any and all of QuickEye's document management and sharing
features. See Select Sheet
editing features, and Item Creator
for measuring details.
