The cusomizable toolbar saves you time going to the menus for frequently used commands. The new Layers palette stays visible all the time and gives constant feedback of which layers are visible simplifying operations. Support for AutoCAD 2013/2014 DWG Files (AC1027) and improved support for BMP linking.
Combine these with the new coordinate system, larger drawing size, better rulers, customizable scales and improved text handling and you have the simplest and fastest DWG viewing and annotating program on the market with the genuine easy to learn Macintosh interface.
One new feature which will be most obvious will be the customizable toolbar which is a common in just about any application. A number of commonly used menu commands and options can be accessed from there, greatly increasing the speed of working and therefore the drawing efficiency.
We have introduced a new layers palette to replace the old layers dialog, bringing DWG Viewer up to a more familiar standard for interfacing.
This allows for easier manipulation of documents with multiple layers and now that the layers are constantly in view as a palette, it gives a continuous indication of what is showing in a document.
You have complete control over the layers, allowing for them to be made Visible, Grayed or Invisible.
The new file format has allowed us to increase the maximum drawing size to over 14 feet 10 inches (4.5m) square. This is 10 times the area of the previous version of of DWG Viewer increasing the viewing environment therefore simplifying the whole process.
The new coordinate system may not be immediately apparent, however its implementation has allowed for a more precise drawing system. The size of drawing now adjusts to the LCD monitor resolution, meaning that we can display the size of a page more realistically, as one inch on the screen is now closer to one physical inch. This in turn makes drawing easier and faster without the need to use the zoom functions to adjust the size of your document.
Rulers are now displayed larger on higher resolution screens and have more realistic and useful divisions that adapt depending on the scale and units you have selected. Now decimal values are divided into 10 increments and fractional are divided into 8, making them more practical and easier to use than before.
The addition of customizable scales has meant that you have complete control over the scales that you use in your drawings. Allowing you to fill in any gaps in the default scales, making DWG Viewer much more flexible.
To prevent the loss of text when printing we have introduced paragraph text feedback, so than when text will not fit in the text box or may be obscured when printing, a red box will appear around it and a dialog will appear when trying to print. This option can be turned on and off via the Text menu and helps to prevent printing with incomplete text, saving time, paper and ink.
To increase the support we have made DWG Viewer compatable with the AutoCAD 2010/2011/2012 DWG files bringing your PC and Mac even closer together. We have also improved the support for BMP linking in your DWG files.
