Adding Location Plans

Upload Path

AutoCAD → PDF → Upload

AutoCAD → Illustrator → PDF → Upload

When uploading plans, doing so from source documents will improve your experience and runtime in SignAgent. Any editing that is done in Illustrator can introduce elements that dramatically affect the performance of your location. 

Choose Where to Place the Plan

  1. Select: Wrench in the Locations area of the sidebar
  2. Choose: New Location

You can also Right-click on any Folder in the Location Structure to add.

Enter Plan Information

  1. Name - This is a full name of the floor plan, like "Level 3"
  2. Short Code - This is a shortened version of the name, like "3" or "L3"
  3. Choose File - This will open up a dialog where you can choose a PDF plan from your computer.
  4. Scale - Add a scale for this location plan. This is used for in-app measurements and scaled custom sign markers. You can see more info on this here: Scaled Location Plans. Once scaling has been added to a location plan, all future plans must match this scale. 
  5. Scale Markers - If you check this, this plan will use custom markers from the "Scaled Custom Markers" section for each sign type, if available.
  6. Save - Don't forget!

Once you've added the new plan, you'll be able to view a comparison between new and old. Check out this article for more info on that: Location Plan Comparisons

Once the plan has been uploaded and rendered, you'll also be able to adjust the opacity. See more on that here: Location Plan Opacity
