    Run "Convert slddrw to pdf" from drawing?

    Grant Kirkland

      I have the PDM task "Convert SLDDRW to PDF" set up to run as admin on the server as to avoid check in/permission issues with our users. It is not convenient for a user to make a change to a drawing, then browse or search to the location of the drawing, right click, and run the task. Would it be possible to convert the built in task to a macro button that we could place on a toolbar? Or have a right click menu accessible from the PDM tab in solidworks?

       

      This would allow a user to make a drawing change, save, check in, and convert the updated drawing to a PDF all from the same screen.
