I searched, nothing come up.
A bit of background.
In my line of work the blueprints are huge.
Huge, like 1m*3m
The paper copies get pretty ragged pretty quick as I have to drag 'em around the construction sites, writing notes and measurement values on them.
Folding and unfolding takes its toll after a while.
I can get (and have gotten) the blueprints in .dwg form and uploaded 'em -through a effing cloud
- into my cheapo 7" Dmtech tablet.
Everything's good and dandy and works heaps better than the paper sheets except for two things:
I can't seem to control the text height/line thickness for some reason, so my notes get buried into the maze of other information on the pic. That
feature I can live with and there's methods (like scaling afterwards, one by one) of going around that but not as easy as a fixed, larger, text height.
The cloud thing is not something I'm able to live with for long I believe, because it disables me from accessing the .dwg and .dxf files directly from SD card or USB storage device.
More importantly, I can't easily transfer the files beween computers.
Everything has to go through the cloud/account it seems to me.
Supposedly makes e-mailing 'em a breeze though.
There's a plethora of things I like about the Autodesk's free offering, so if someone would have any pointers about those two inconveniences, I'd be very grateful.
OTOH, if someone knows a "better" solution, I'm all ears.
A some kind of layer control is an absolute, non-negotiable requirement though.
I usually have about a hundred layers in the pics that I need at least to turn on/off if nothing else.
The more advanced the layer control, the better. Obviously.
I do very much like the possible alternative app being free as well, just like the WS is, I don't feel like paying much for convenience that is in no way compensated or even encouraged by the people I work for.
