Viewing Floor Plans

Depending on your web browser settings, you may be prompted to open or save floor plans.  Additionally, some web browsers may be configured to automatically download or open this file type.  If floor plans do not open automatically in the desired CAD viewer, navigate to your downloads folder and open the file manually.  The ITS Help Center can assist you with configuring your preferred web browser to achieve the most desirable workflow.


Navigating Floor Plans

When a floor plan is opened in DWG TrueView, the drawing tool is selected by default (identified by a cross icon).  Since most users are interested in navigating the drawing, we recommend selecting the hand tool immediately after the drawing opens (shown below).
