Does anyone know of a program that will allow a thumbnail view of a dwf
file? I have tried the obvious Volo View Express, and even the WHIP! plugin,
but I think i'll have to go third party on this one.. Any suggestions?

A thumbnail view could be achieved by embedding a small instance of the
Whip viewer object in an html file, perhaps in a table. Take a look at
this page [http://www.dotsoft.com/temp/untitled.htm], and do a 'View
Source'. In it you will see what could be considered as 'slightly
large' thumbnails of width="360" height="300". By the way, this page of
html was created in just a couple of clicks using DwgBrowser 1.0 from
http://www.dotsoft.com.

If you wanted external bitmap representations of the dwf files they
could be created in code using Whip's DrawCurrentViewToDC Method. But
as the DWF's changed the bitmaps would become out of date. So its a
tradeoff of speed -vs- revision maintenance.

Nearly anything is possible!
