Soft Gold Announces Version 5.1

TULA , Russia December 22, 2005 : Soft Gold today announces the release of ABViewer, the latest version of a professional dwg viewer designed for the use in industry and at home. This application allows you to browse, view, and edit CAD files as well as the most popular raster and vector file formats. ABViewer includes the editing tools for fine-tuning your images and converting them to different file formats. You can edit any single file or several files at once. Also, with the ABViewer's tile printing feature, you can print one large image to several A4 format pages.

“ABViewer will provide the best value for professionals who are looking for an affordable AutoCAD-style viewer for their CAD design needs,” said Dmitry Sidorkin, CEO of Soft Gold. “With ABViewer, you can view and print DXF, DWG, HPGL/2, CGM and SVG drawings with a large range of settings, including Color/Black Drawing, Show/Hide Lineweight, Real/Splitted Arcs and others. The program is ideal for integrating DWG/DXF drawings to the MS Office documents. Simply copy any portion of an image with the Clip Rectangle tool and paste it to the document. Coping is a breeze and has no effect on the quality of an output image.”


1. Common view. A portion of the drawing is selected with the Clip Rectangle tool.

ABViewer has an intuitive interface where commonly used options and commands can be easily located on the toolbar. To open an image, you can browse through the folders in the Explorer Panel. However any frequently used image can be added to the Favorites list and opened in one click through the Favorites Panel. Thanks to the advanced image loading and navigation capabilities, opening an image is lightning fast even for AutoCAD DXF files. To view an image the way you want, you can use scrolling, manual and auto zooming, auto-window size, and dragging.

Along with viewing, ABViewer can be used for image fine-tuning and format conversion. You can rotate, resize, rename images and convert them to BMP, EMF, JPEG, GIF and TIFF file formats. And with ABViewer's Batch function, you can apply conversion settings to many images at once. It will help you spend less time on repetitive tasks and work more productively. Also, ABViewer can help you print large images to several pages that can be later on glued together. The following predefined sizes are available: A, B, C, D, E; ISO-A, DIN: A4, A3, A2, A1, A0.
