  6. Place a defect item pin on the drawing by tapping the area where you want the item to appear.
  7. After the defect item has been placed, choose from the following options: 
    • To link an existing item:
      1. Tap Link Existing to select an existing defect to add.
      2. Select the item to add it to the pin.

    1. Tap the Select markup tool.
