Linking and unlinking drawings and objects
When the Asset Management Module extracts drawing tag information, it searches the vault for matching objects. The objects that it finds might or might not be linked to the current drawing. They might be linked if the object was created from the tag information as described in Creating objects from drawing tags. or they might be linked because another user performed the following procedure.
To link or unlink a drawing from objects that match drawing tags:
- Select the document in PowerUser that contains the drawing tags that you want to use. For information on finding documents, see the BlueCielo Meridian Enterprise User’s Guide.
- Display the drawing tags as described in Viewing drawing tags.
- Select the rows that contain matching objects that you want to link to or unlink from the current drawing.
Tip To select multiple rows:
- Hold down the Ctrl key and click to select individual documents.
- Select one row and then hold down the Shift key and click another row to select a range of rows.

- To link the selected objects:
