Telecommute DWF issues.

Hi all,

I am trying to allow some of my Inventor Users to telecommute.

 

Part of this is the abiility to send a print package to work from home.

I was thinking that DWF might be the best way to go about this.

 

I see I can drag and drop DWF drawings into a new empty DWF. This is nice  but not very workable when you have hundreds of drawings.

 

Is there an append method in the ADR API so I can do this programmically?

 

Thanks.

 

P.S.  The 2013 ADR activeX will not embed in VB.NET 2010 for some reason.

Just ran into another issue.  Dragging and Dropping DWF files from explorer into a single new dwf inside ADR causes the Technic Font to turn to some other font that doesn't support the characters set in Technic.

 

I get Squares for each character.

 

If I load the original dwf files one at a time the technic font shows up perfectly.

 

Still hoping someone can shed some light on appending DWF files into one master file from inventor VBA.

 

I do not see any options to do so....

I found an article that states that DWFx has problems with fonts DWF does not.

I am programmically running the DWF TranslatorAddin with Itembyid(<Guid>) to select the translator.

I copied the sample in Inventor 2011, but i am wondering if it is really the id for the DWFx and not the DWF translator.

as I am getting the font corruption.
