   Helpful Commands
These commands are not direct irrigation design commands, but they are helpful just as well.
Revision Cloud
Revision clouds are used to draw attention to sections of a design during the review stage. The Revision Cloud command will allow you to draw a revision cloud made up of three or more points on the design screen. All revision cloud lines are automatically placed on the Revision Cloud layer in the Layer Manager.
