Question:

How can a user enable the eDrawings measurement utility on a Mac for DWG files?


Answer:

This is a limitation that the option of measuring a native DWG is only available in eDrawings Professional, which is currently only offered for PC.  A workaround is to acquire one PC, purchase and install a copy of eDrawings Professional and re-save the DWG files to eDrawings files.  In order for the measure tool to be active in the eDrawings Free Viewer, the option “enable measurement” should be checked when saving an eDrawings file on eDrawings Professional.
