Many Bentley CAD applications currently have the ability to produce 2D/3D design files that contain both graphics and non-graphical business items.
Users can publish these non-graphical business items to a PDF document or export them to a Google Earth KML file. In a PDF document the business items appear as objects in Adobe Reader’s Model Tree. In an exported Google Earth KML file the business items appear as Placemarks inside Google Earth.
By default, business items are not included in the published PDF document or exported to the Google Earth KML file. To include business items in a PDF document, use the Print dialog'smenu item. To include business items in a Google Earth KML file, use the Google Earth Settings dialog ( ) item. These two dialogs allow you to include all, none, or a subset of the business items contained in a design file.
To include a subset of the business items contained in a design file, you must create a Property Filter file using the Property Filter dialog and specify this file in the Print - PDF Property Publishing Dialog dialog or in the Google Earth Settings dialog.
