Merge multiple files into one?

Hey guys/gals,

I was just wondering if there was any way that multiple DWF files could be merged into one? I have two files, both with information that I need at the same time and would like to maybe merge them together into one file, or copy a sheet from one (with markups) to the other. As I cannot have them both open at the same time, I was hoping I could do this somehow. Any ideas?

I guess I should've created them as a multi-sheet DWF in the first place (they're just published from AutoCAD), but now I've gotten this far with markups so I was hoping to not have to start over... Thanks for any ideas here!

Why can't you open them both at the same time? If
you could, you could drag sheets from one DWF and drop them in the
other.

Well, my face is red... :smileyhappy:

Because I couldn't open multiple DWF's in one open instance of Design Review, I figured I couldn't open multiple files... Didn't think about opening two instances of ADR!

And I did not know about the drag-and-drop functionality, that works great! Thanks so much!

Thank you for your question.

There are two ways to merge multiple files into one:

1. Open one DWF file, then drag and drop another DWF file into the Thumbnails palette of the opening file. Save it.

OR

2. In the file folder, select the multiple DWF files, then right-click on a selected DWF file, select Merge command. Save the merged file.

Please let me know if I can be any of further help.

Hi Folks,

All these methods are documented in the Design Review Help under "Combine DWF Files".

Best,
