Launching the Windows App Canvas

To launch the native Windows 10 canvas:

  • Log in to the app and select which project you want to work on.
  • Navigate to the drawing or document you want to view and tap on its name.

    • If you haven’t yet, you must first download the file to your device before you can freely launch it in the canvas. You will prompted to do so.
    • Files saved locally to the device will have a blue tick to the right of the name

  • Inside the native app canvas you will be able to:
    • View the document in the highest quality available
    • Easily pan and zoom around the document
    • See all public layer annotations appear in real-time
    • Add basic markups to the public layer or your own private layer

  • To return to the project menu, simply click the grid button on the top left of the screen.
