Placing Signature Rules

You can barely separate CADsecurity Signature from the drawing elements, the Signature is part
of the drawing elements.

Place CADsecurity Signature randomly and well hidden in your drawing elements or blocks.

Nobody can identify the existence of CADsecurity Signature unless they know your
unique character string signature.

If you place the CADsecurity Signature on important parts of drawing, is very likely that copy and paste takes CADsecurity™ Signature too.

Attach CADsecurity Signature to a normal
small drawing’s parts like blocks, tables,
simple lines or polylines.

Searching for Signatures

  1. Write your Signature with at least 12 Characters. The program will search for the signature only if you give the right one.
  2. "Select Element for Signature Check >" select polyline or block for CADsecurity Signature check. If the program find your signature you will receive the message. You can not search for signatures you do not know.
  3. "Select Full Drawing for Signature Check >" CADsecurity Signature check for the whole drawing. If the program find your signature you will receive the message. You can not search for signatures you do not know.
  4. "Mark All Signatures" If the program find your signature the red arrow appears on exact this position where the signature is placed.
