Re: "Read Only" AutoCad files

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You can also install the same plotter driver on your machine that your
client has.  Then make a plot file for him to use.  He will be able to
plot it, but won't even be able to see it on screen.  You will need pen
settings from your client though.
