Project Task Pane Right Click Options

You can also access these options by right-clicking anywhere in the Projects section of the Display Area.  There are some additional options on this right-click menu that are not available in the Task Pane:


Open in Visio->New Drawing

This will create a new Visio file for the Project.

Open in AutoCAD->New Drawing

This will create a new AutoCAD file for the Project.

Rename Project File

If you wish to rename one of your drawing files associated with a project, you can do this via the Selected Project Details tab by right-clicking the file:
