These elements are added to the drawing file and contain the properties associated with the content file, such as Line Style and Layers. Simply drag and drop the content from the palette into the task pane.
Drawing Compare: This add-on can be used to graphically compare entities between two drawing documents. The differences between the drawings are displayed in color codes.
