Does anyone know if it is possible to batch or create a binder of DWF files once they are already created as individual files.

Batch DWF

You can do this using DWF Composer (recently renamed to Autodesk Design Review). This allows you to create multi-page files, annotate and markup files. Shoud give you everything you need.

Thanks Wes,

We don't have composer yet. The reason I asked was because I saved about 50 drawings to dwf as seperate files then wanted to upload them all to a project web site and realised I should have exported as one file. Anyway the saviour was that we zipped the files and uploeaded OK.
On the same subject, I've found that exporting multiple drawings to one DWF file then printing to PDF saves having to name each PDF as you have to when printing directly from revit. I know it could be easier to ask others to download the DWF reader but a short stepping stone for now.

I keep trying to get people to use DWF rather than PDF, but I find people are a bit reluctant to install yet another Autodesk app. :roll:

DWF files are much smaller than equivalent PDF files, which is what I like about them.

I really hope MS is going to have DWF support in Vista! (It isn't in the latest Beta of Vista, unfortunately :cry: )
