******An Important Note About Drawing Deletion******

Once a drawing has been uploaded to the ArcSite Cloud account, there will be 2 delete options.

In that context, you can choose where to delete the drawing from.

  1. Delete From Device - This option will delete the drawing from the local device BUT leave a version in the cloud

  2. Delete From Cloud - This option will delete the drawing from the local device AND the version saved in the cloud. In this context, there will be no backup available.

In order to delete or copy a project, you need to be in the “Manage” mode.

  1. Tap on the Select link at the top right on the project’s screen

  2. Select one or more drawings

  3. Tap either the Copy or Delete icons that will have appeared at the top left corner

  4. If copying/duplicating, choose which project you wish to copy to

  5. If deleting, acknowledge your choice

  6. Select Done link to exit the Manage mode
