Design Review enforces disabled DWF files published by Autodesk® Inventor. From Autodesk® Inventor® R11 DWF Extension (available to subscription customers) or later, you can prevent recipients from measuring some or all sheets or models in their published DWF files. In addition to disabling measurement, if you are using Autodesk® Inventor® 2008 or later, you can also disable markup and printing capabilities for some or all sheets or models when publishing DWF files.
When you open a DWF file that contains disabled sheets, a dialog box opens listing all the disabled sheets and the restrictions for each. (You can prevent this dialog box from opening by checking thecheck box, or uncheck the check box on the tab in the dialog box.)
When a markup-, measure-, or print-disabled sheet is shown on the canvas, some related tools are disabled. Depending on the disablements, an icon is shown on the Canvas toolbar and in thecolumn of the palette, indicating that portions of the DWF file contain disabled features.
Placing the mouse pointer over the icon shows all restrictions applied to the content on that sheet. Also, DWF files that contains markup-, measure-, or print-disabled sheets retain their disablements in embedded mode. Furthermore, when disabled sheets are copied or moved to another DWF file, or are saved as a new DWF file, the disablements are retained.
