DWF Beta Manager, Volker Joseph, reports that our product design team is asking for your input:
When it comes to text search, we know what you want. While viewing a DWF file, you want the ability to type in a text string, hit enter, and have Autodesk Design Review take you to the destination sheet and navigate to the text. We know this. The item is on the wish list. It is being considered for an upcoming release.
We are in the process of researching text search further. What is your priority for text search results in a 3D model? Should search be limited to text that has been inserted as part of a design and exclude metadata such as part number, properties, etc.?
We would like to get a better idea of what your DWF files look like. It would be very helpful if you can send us some sample 3D DWF files with text in them.
Please reply to this post with your feedback or send an email with your files directly to Volker Joseph should you prefer to keep your content out of public view. Designing future text-related capabilities to meet customer needs is alive in the lab.
