We recently implemented PDM and I'm rolling with the changes. In summary, I am hoping to use the Dispatch add-in to help with our process. I would like dispatch to check out the PDF associated with a SLDDRW file when the SLDDRW file is checked out. We'd make any changes, save the PDF and then check the SLDDRW back in and I would like Dispatch to then check the PDF back in as well.
This would save a ton of time navigating windows explorer to find the file and check it in and out.
Is it possible to include the PDF in the "check in/out" prompt that opens when opening solidworks files for editing. I'm not sure if I have a broken reference, or if PDM was never designed to include PDF files as referenced files since they aren't native to solidworks.
