Modular Tool – ability to create one shop drawing for panels with the identical numbers generated with “same as original” option

When using the “Same as Original” for the label controls (numbering) and shop drawings are being generated, MWF will now compile the number of panels that have the same number and include it in the shop drawings. Users can now generate a single shop drawing for their modular panels of the same name and number.
