Does the PowerDWG translator support AutoCAD Xrefs and View Ports?

Requirements

PowerCADD version 7 and Mac OS? X Tiger (10.4.4) or newer recommended



Answers

Xrefs
No, the PowerDWG Translator, bundled with PowerCADD v7, does not support AutoCAD Xrefs. Each AutoCAD Xref is a unique file and it would have to be translated separately. Ttranslating each file separately isn't recommended as the files typically don't contain a common reference set of objects to reassemble them in the right location. The best solution is to have the AutoCAD user perform a Bind Xrefs command to create a single, self contained file, then translate the bound file.

View Ports
No, the PowerDWG Translator, bundled with PowerCADD v7, does not support AutoCAD View Ports. The PowerDWG Translator lets you see and translate all data in Model Space, which is the true drawing environment in AutoCAD containing the actual objects used in the file. You can also translate any data in Paper Space separately using the PowerDWG Translator and reassemble the two files in PowerCADD later if necessary.
