1. E-Ink That Works Just Like Real Ink

At its core is an easy-to-use yet powerful e-ink capability. This allows you to draw with the smoothness of real ink directly on your computer screen. It fully supports both Microsoft Surface and Wacom tablets as well.

2. Notes That Come Alive

Want to make even more detailed notes? It’s easy. RedLine 2018 sports an all-new SmartNote feature, which goes well beyond simply entering text. Instead, it actually allows you to use the text in a variety of ways to clearly communicate your ideas. One example of this is the Auto-MarkUp Feature, which will both predict and autocomplete your sentences, and at the same time it will draw on screen the same ink drawn when the auto markup was saved.

3. Easy, Accurate Communication Across The Team

RedLine 2018 can certainly be helpful to a single user. However, to unlock the full power, each member of the engineering team would ideally have his or her own subscription. This supercharges the team's communication abilities and allows notes made by one individual to be visible by another, signed off by the manager, and even reviewed by the person who first created the markup.

4. Comprehensive Record-Keeping

Using RedLine 2018 means that communication is fully tracked, traceable and 100% electronic, with zero printing or paper waste. It’s the perfect solution for record-keeping, since audit history trails show the versions and markups of every engineering drawing, providing a full history.

5. Instant Language Translation

SmartNote also boasts an impressive array of features, such as real-time multi-language translation. This allows you to type a note in English, for example, and instantly see the translation in French – or in any other of the 18 languages included.

 

6. Snag-And-Edit Technology

As if the innovative features above weren't enough, RedLine 2018 includes an industry first, called ScreenEYE™ OCR. This feature allows you to draw a circle around any chunk of text on screen, and it will instantly read the text and place it into a SmartNote box, where you can easily and quickly make minor edits to entire blocks of text. 

7. Handwriting Recognition

Those who love their Microsoft Surface have not been forgotten. Fully compatible with this generation of tablets, RedLine 2018 supports handwriting recognition for SmartNote, where you can jot down a note and have it automatically converted into typed text. You can even create an entire GD&T block by handwriting, which is really an out-of-this-world experience when used on a tablet.

This supercharges the team's communication abilities and allows notes made by one individual to be visible by another, signed off by the manager, and even reviewed by the person who first created the markup.
