Install the Validation Tools Add-In - SmartSketch - Help

SmartSketch Help


The Validation Tools AddIn allows you to run a file validation utility that scans documents for certain kinds of stream inconsistencies and conflicts between style type and geometry type. The results of each scan are written to a validation log file.

You can use the Validation Tool to scan your files on a case-by-case basis or to scan each file automatically when it is opened in the software.

  1. Click Tools > Add-Ins.

  2. In the Add-In Manager dialog box, select the Validation Tools AddIn check box in the list of Available add-ins.

    • If the add-in is not displayed in the Available add-ins list, click Browse and navigate to <installation directory>:\Program\igrValidateAddIn413.dll.

    • If you do not see the Validation Tools AddIn file, run the Custom setup to install this option. For more information on installing SmartSketch options, see the <aProduct> Installation Guide, available with the Help > Printable Guides command from within the software.

  3. Click OK. The software displays the Validate toolbar in the SmartSketch window.

  • You can drag the Validate toolbar and dock it at the top, bottom, or either side of the document window.
