DWG Properties in Directory Opus Columns
« on: June 18, 2016, 02:29:20 AM »
Hi,

I've been investigating the possibilities of getting DWG properties to display in Windows Explorer columns (and Directory Opus Explorer Replacement), which has led me to... http://jtbworld.com/dwg-columns-for-explorer#about

Which works great for Windows Explorer. Unfortunately it is not compatible with Directory Opus. I have been in-touch with JTB and they have advised me that it could be possible to update their program to include compatibility with DOpus, but have asked that I cover any development costs.

So... a couple of questions:

1. Are there any other Directory Opus users out there who would be interested in having support for DWG properties within DOpus columns - and help spread the financial load of the developer?

2. Are there any other options available for getting DWG properties into Windows (and other) Explorer? I have done quite a bit of searching and have not come up with much (other than the JTB program).

Thanks a lot for any help.

For anyone interested, the Directory Opus developers have been kind enough to provide support for DWG Columns (via a script).

Here is a JTB blog post explaining the procedure... http://blog.jtbworld.com/2016/11/how-to-use-dwg-columns-in-directory-opus.html

I can highly recommend DOpus for all PC users, not just draftsman.

PS:  I am in no way affiliated with Directory Opus or JTB, haha.
