FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: What file types can I upload to Project QuickShare?
A: Currently, Project QuickShare allows a user to upload and view both 2D and 3D DWF and DWFx files. Most design software is able to export to a DWF format. DWF’s are small and fast to transmit without the overhead associated with complex CAD files. It is also an easy way to communicate design information and content to anyone without needing to know or have AutoCAD or other design software.
Q: Are there any size or complexity restrictions for uploading?
A: There are no restrictions, however, like anything else online, larger files will take longer to upload and prepare for viewing. Very large or complex documents may also result in limited performance within the viewer.
Q: My document won’t load – what should I do?
A: Your document may have failed in translation, contain corrupt data, or not be a compatible file format. We first recommend re-uploading the document. If that fails, try downloading the desktop version of Design Review 2012.
Q: Can I save or store files online?
A: No – not explicitly. Anything you upload is stored online for sharing, and your most recent uploads are cached on the QuickShare webpage, but if you’re interested in a storage/collaboration solution we suggest Project Nitrous.
Q: How long will my uploaded documents stay online?
A: There is no guarantee of how long documents will remain online since this service is set up as a quick viewing and sharing workflow. If you are looking for something more long term or permanent, we suggest creating an account with Project Nitrous.
Q: Can I edit my document?
A: Currently, Project QuickShare is meant to only function as tool for viewing and sharing. No changes can be made or saved to a document.
Q: Can I use Mark-Up?
A: New Mark-Up can’t be created, but existing Mark-Up can still be viewed. If you are interested in creating Mark-Up for a document, use the desktop version of Design Review 2012.
