Determines whether markup appears in the drawing window.




Markup is displayed on the drawing.


Markup is not displayed (the default).

When markup tracking is turned on (AddMarkup cell is TRUE), the ViewMarkup cell is automatically set to TRUE and remains TRUE even after markup tracking has been turned off (AddMarkup cell is FALSE). The value in the ViewMarkup cell is ignored when the AddMarkup cell is TRUE.

The ViewMarkup cell is also set to TRUE when comments are inserted in a drawing (whether or not markup tracking is turned on) and must be TRUE to see comments in the drawing.
