Subject: Working with audio notes

In CADdirect you can record and attach audio notes, which are sound clips attached to entities and available for playback at any time. For example, audio notes in a fac­tory floor plan can describe maintenance activities for specific areas of the factory and employees can play the audio notes to hear instructions.

When you include audio notes in your drawing, they are saved in the drawing file — not in a separate audio file. Note that this can increase the file size of your drawing. Audio notes created from an existing *.wav file are also saved in the drawing file and the separate *.wav file remains unchanged.

You can play audio notes in CADdirect only.
