This is definitely something on the road map. Imagine having a sharing
session where multiple participants mark up the design. Each can see the
other's markups in real time. At the end of the session, you do a SaveAs DWF
and then use the Markup Set Manager to load all of the markups, regardless
of which participant made the comment, into AutoCAD. You would have the
power of Design Review combined with the power of real-time collaboration
via the web. You could also place send the DWF file to others who only have
Design Review, and perhaps no internet access, and those users could see the
markups too. In this scenario, the existence of a DWF file containing the
markup is known and prevalent.
An alternative to this scenario would be some feature like "View session in
AutoCAD."Behind the scenes, a DWF file would have to be created and loaded
via the Markup Set Manager, but the user would be unaware. This is analogous
to how ShareNow works today. A DWF is published and uploaded to Project
Freewheel, but the user doesn't really see that. They simply click the
ShareNow button and they see their design in the browser. They can then
start a sharing session, pick a unique name, and they are off to the races.
So I am interested in feedback on the tradeoff of exposing the DWF so it can
be used for other purposes versus making the process so simple that
existence of the DWF file is cloaked.
Thank you for brining this topic up!

Is it possible to import Project freewheel markups into a DWG file, as in
I like the idea that the markups transfer back to the original file, ie: revit in my case, and the other participants, developers and homeowners in my case never have to deal with filetypes, save as's, and don't have the DWF unless I want to share it
