I have many dwg-files and have installed DWG True View 2013 and Design Review 2013. If I now open a dwg-File in Design Review direktly I do not get the layerinformations.
Whre do I have to change the settings so that in this automatic conversion of the dwg-files in dwf the layers will also be included.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I tried this before in the printing settings in my DWG True View 2013. I have checked and changed the Custom Properties of the DWF6ePlot.pc3 and the DWFx ePlot (XPS Compatible).pc3 so both should include layer information.
But when I still open a dwg-file directly in Autodesk Design Review, the converted dwf-file does not include the layers.

Do it the long way then it's never been capable of translating DWG files to DWF on it's own. By design.
DTV has a publish feature you can use to convert a long list of DWGs to DWF properly. to fit your exact needs, if you don't have AutoCAD to do so.
So Design Review uses it's own super-secret plotter for importing a DWG (or any other supported format), I take it? Strange that it cannot be customized in any way.
The more I attempt to incorporate Design Review into our workflows, the more I wonder just what Adobe was thinking when they created this application.
