4.10 Setting Security on Graphic Elements

Security permissions can be set for graphic elements and drawing objects such as templates, node styles, and clip art. Follow the same rules as those used for establishing permissions for other elements. The security permissions are used for controlling who can view and manage the Graphics objects in the Administration branch or use them when editing drawings.

These permissions apply when editing Layout view drawings. However, the permissions are ignored when a user views a saved drawing. For example, a user does not need View permissions for a clip art image in order to see the clip art in a Layout drawing. However, in Edit mode, a user needs View permissions to add the clip art to a new drawing or to an existing drawing.
