Project Sharing and VW Viewer

Recommended Posts

Hi All,


Is there a method to getting the viewer to open a project file or will it only open a .vwx file?  I have a user in the office that only needs to get into a drawing every once in a while to confirm some measurements.  Would kinda hate to have to waste a whole s/n on it.


Thanks in advance.

For me, VWXP and secondarily, VWXW files.

Our office of 18 are using Project Share across the board. Our technicians on the road need to have VW Viewer to snap measurements, preview plans, etc. Without the ability to open a project share file via viewer adds a layer of delay and additional workflow for those of us who have already moved on to other projects.

Additionally, which one of us has the final responsibility to do that "Save a copy as" back to VWX? Worse, what if I save the VWX and then someone else does an update after I'm done? Etc....


Thanks, Scott
