Q - question

Track who and when has changed each entity in a DWG drawing.

A - answer With the add-on LISP utility (reactor) DWGOsign you can easily track editing history on each drawing object inside your AutoCAD drawings.


DWGOsign will individually sign any changed and newly drawn DWG objects with a "signature" containing the user name (login name) and timestamp of the latest change (plus optional other data). This signature data is added transparently (without changing the standard AutoCAD behaviour) on a drawing object level. Signature data can be then viewed interactively or reported globally to Excel. You can also select all objects changed by a specified user.

DWGOsign is compatible with AutoCAD 2013 and 2012.
