If you have Boot Camp on your MAC (you do if your OS is Leopard), you can install Design Review on the Windows partition. Or you could run Design Review via Parallels or VMware Fusion. These are two of the more popular Windows Virtual Machines on the market. I've been running Design Review on a MAC (via VMware fusion) for a while and it works fine.

Can you edit drawings and return them to the sender? How well does the processor handle the task?Thanks

Yes, you can edit them and return to sender. My processor handles the task just fine. Do it.

ADR is not made for the MAC OS, just Microsoft Windows, you would have to install a Window Emulator first. here are the system requirements:

Explore this topic if you must have an app for MAC:

Whats the point in using McDwiff when you have more functionality with Autodesk360?

 

It woudl be kick **** if it had the same markup tools as Design Review Desktop does

Does anyone even use macdwf?  Everyone that I know that have tried it complains about having to pay $9.99 for it and what a waste of money and time it was downloading it.

Be a consumer: you buy something that blows then contact the manufacturer and complain. Work up a gorup and hit their blogs and customer service lines hard. Voicing your opinions over here, whiel helpful, does nothing to change the facts of that software.

 

Sadly, you all will just have to wait for Autodesk to catch up with their Mac platform of products somehow, in the meantime what's out there is all you got to pick from :smileysad:
