Can the Workspace of ArchStudio be saved as DWF and drag-dropped to DWF Composer?

David, Architectural Studio reads DWFs, but it does not publish to DWF. If you open a DWF in Architectural Studio, you can mark it up and export it to jpg format, which will open in DWF Composer. By the same token, you can take a snapshot of a workspace with the snapshot tool, which produces a jpg image. To export the DWF as jpg: Click the triangle within a circle at the bottom of the DWF, on the left of the titlebar and select Export to JPEG. For a Snapshot: Save the file. It's already a jpg. JPGs open DWF Composer where they are treated as DWFs. The image, of course, will not have vector data in the background.

And you can always use DWF Writer to print the workspace to a DWF.

Thank you Anne, Will play with that and demo it it this way. The JPG file format will be larger than a dwf of a simple hand sketch on "napkin". We have a user who is interested in publishing to DWF file his work space (AWS file) to send to clients. He would like to scan the sketches taken over meetings and bring them into AAS and show the evolution of the design concept as a presentation board then send to DWF open in it Composer, add prelim cost figures and email it. Noticed a Word doc is typically 3 times bigger than a PDF format of the same file. Can you add a wish list to reduce that to compare with PDF?

Wow yes! That was it! Did not remind myself the DWF driver exists in the printer Control Panel!
