DWG Viewer Balck and White

DWF Composer has a sub application that is the DWG Viewer which allows you to publish to DWF.

The DWG Viewer application needs two additional functions
1) Display on screen in Black and White
2) Publish in Black and White

If these two functions are included into DWG Viewer - then it would be reasonable to not maintain Voloview as a viable product - otherwise - Autocad has defeated much of the purpose of the DWF exercise and engineers like me will simply go back to directing the drafting personel to issue the drawings in adobe acrobat. Is this what Autodesk is intending to happen?

PDF is a nice publishing format, if that's all you need.

It is nice - but I like to have engineers mark up in Voloview - but for DWG Viewer to replace Voloview - you need a 'View in Black and White' button and a 'Print in Black and White Button'. Autodesk has to consider that the users of DWF Composer are not draftmen - if they were - they would use Autocad would they not? Did Autodesk simply miss this? Will it be out in a future edition?

Use print settings with monochrome pen table. If your plotter is black output why use color pen tables?
