Mr Macro and Export to JPEG

Well, since we now have an R6 only Newsgroup, I suppose I should
announce two new utilities I have posted which are R6 specific. Both are
posted to http://www.cbliss.com/inventor/iCode/index.htm

Mr Macro is a utility which allows you to load ivb macros without all
the overhead. It puts in a menu item which loads a dialog pointing at
your Macro Directory. Just double click on one of your IVB files and it
loads it. There is a limitation in that it will not show default macros
unless you have loaded the VBA editor or listed a VBA program by having
Inventor listing it via its macro command (API limitation). It will not
show macros from password protected VBA programs but it will load them.

Save to JPEG exports JPEGs either by hitting a button in its dialog or
by having them saved automatically. This utility places an entry in the
tools menu. It is not fully operational yet in that it will not iterate
through multiple sheets in IDWs, it does not yet wait for views to go
precise etc. It should work well for getting high res pretty pictures
of your models and assemblies.

Since these are both "first release" items, use at your own risk and
send me any issues you discover.

Enjoy!
