I know this is an AutoCAD thing but can you add features to have transparency and or some kind of draw order setting to allow the hardlines of the Dwf DWG to show up when using the fills? Colored hatching is an alternate. Lease agents who will be adopting this program to send for changes to the design are asking for a way for the fills to allow the wall lines to show when thay shade spaces in the lease plans. They need ways to show fills demsing lines and other information in the markups. Thanks David

Right now the DWF supports the lines merge when printing much like how AutoCAD doesn't show it but it prints it. Hopefully future version will have an option to show it but you can take a pretty good performance hit to show lines merge in a viewer. One could write a routine that would push the solid fills or all hatches down in the draworder list also. -- Rodney McManamy President CADzation ------------------------- rmcmanamy@cadzation.com ------------------------- 518 South Route 31 Suite 200 McHenry, IL 60050 www.cadzation.com Providing Industrial Strength PDF & DWF Solutions to the Global CAD Marketplace.

The new DWF Viewer 5 does merging of lines for display as well. -- Sriram Gopalakrishnan Autodesk
