Error Messages

⚠️As noted in the Revising a Plan section, it is strongly advised to have the new revision files with the same dimensions as the "Current" plan.
Plan Revision - resolution sample

A different resolution or file dimension will not align with the Scale you have set previously. It will likely put Measurements and annotations off the intended positions. Symbols Sizes cannot be automatically adjusted.
