We are gona use DWG True View for about 100 users. We also have a netwerk with 60 AutoCAD 2014 engineers. As in AutoCAD we want to make a profile with settings (like plotter settenings of display colors)

I can't find this option in DWG True View 2014.

When I make a modification fot these settings in DWG True View 2014 it will be saved. Because when I start it with another drawing the settings are correct.

I've searches the register and in ini files on the disc, but can't find them.

How to get (import) these setting on the other 100 workstations?

Many thanks in advance.

Regards, Erwin

The Free Viewer has none of those AutoCAD abilities.

You need to look a little more closely in the registry.  The structure is the same as for AutoCAD so if you can work with one you can work with the other.  As with all things registry be cautious and backup *before* testing.

If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.
Adopt. Adapt. Overcome. Or be overcome.
A good question will be halfway to a good answer.

What dgorsman said. Although profiles are not supported via the Option dialog, you can save and import a lot of the stuff there via a REG file.


For example, the support file search path can be found here:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\DWG TrueView\Rxx\dwgviewr-xxxx:xxx\Profiles\<<Unnamed Profile>>\General\Support
