View and Markup
You can use ViewCompanion Pro to add markups/comments to your drawings.

If you need to distribute drawings on the Internet, you can convert your drawings to Autodesk Drawing Web Format (DWF), Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) or Adobe PDF. All these formats are very popular for distributing drawings.

ViewCompanion can convert multiple files of different formats to a single multi-page PDF file. You can also use ViewCompanion to convert HPGL/2, CGM and DWF files to AutoDesk DXF format which you can read in any major CAD application, e.g.: Autodesk AutoCAD or Microstation. Both batch conversion and printing is available.


ViewCompanion gives you advanced functions for zooming and panning, so that you can view your files fast and accurate, before printing or converting them. The mouse wheel can be used for zooming and panning operations.

With ViewCompanion Pro you can add markups to the loaded file. Supported markup elements include rectangles, lines, dimension lines, area measurements, ellipses, polygons, text, arrows, stamps and images. You can select one of the predefined stamps or create your own. User defined symbol libraries makes it easy to add frequently used symbols as markups. Hyper links can be added to markup elements, and a hyper link can either open another drawing in ViewCompanion, or open an Internet location using the default browser. All markup elements are stored in a separate file. The original file will be left unchanged. The markup elements can optionally be included when the viewed file is printed or converted. The markup elements can be exported to a DXF file. Windows 8 CompatibleWindows 7 Compatible
