e-drawins & SW2006

Discussion created by Guest on Mar 22, 2006
We have recently 'upgraded' to SW2006 and e-drawings2006. We have always used e-drawings as a viewer, activating the 'save e-drawings data' option in SW. This has allowed our machine shop and purchasing dept to take additional dimensional info off of drawings/models.

This functionality has now been removed from SW2006! I have contacted SW who claim that this is an enhancement as it reduces file size. I pointed out that for those wanting a smaller file size they could simply de-activate the option. They suggested that we buy 4 seats of e-drawings proffesional to get round the problem.

Has anybody found a way round this??

Any help will be much appreciated as this has really screwed us up and can no longer justify any more expenditure with my managers.
