Workgroup Libraries don't show large RM Preview (just text) + RM access


I realized that all my Library Files from my Workgroup Folders show thumbnails

but no large Preview Image.

(Same for User Libraries ?)


The solution is to manually open all of these directly in VW, which generates Previews,

and saving them again.


Only Converting Files with the Batch Command does not create Previews.

As Batch Convert has already many function options,

I wish for including an additional Checkbox to also create Previews.


Or an Option in Ressource Manager to generate Previews from selected resources.



Also I tried to download some 2017 Libraries from Service Select.

Some may already have, but all that I tried also had no Previews generated and needed manual

opening and saving.

I was wondering as the Online Select Libraries in RM all seem to have Previews included.



For the RM Select Libraries I have a question.

I did not find a way to download a complete Resource File, for example into my Workgroup Folders,

just to import a single Object into my current Drawing.

Not even an RMB Option (for import) if I select more than one Object. Or no drag'n'drop.
