Volo View is not being phased out. Volo View is sold on CD. No one complains
about the download size of Volo View. Volo View is for a specific audience
of dedicated users who need to mark up, measure, and plot to scale as part
of a design collaboration team. For others who just need to view, especially
on an occasional basis, a more lightweight solution is in order. For the
masses that fall into this category, a free and small downloadable viewer is
in order -- Autodesk Express Viewer.

I have. It is just a duplicate database. Nothing good, nothing bad, just
duplicate with all the problems that go with duplicates.
I never have trouble with missing fonts because I use standard ones and not
fancy ones. I put all my symbols in the drawing and not as references so
there are not xfer path hassles. If you are refering to hyperlink paths
that is another matter. Even standard AutoCAD still has some problems with
Something I have done is create a VBA macro in the drawing events "EndSave"
event. The macro makes a dwf file of the drawing every time the drawing is
saved. I have the macro save the dwf file in the same directory as the dwg
