ViewCompanion Premium is the most powerful member of the ViewCompanion family. ViewCompanion Premium can view, print and convert Adobe PDFPDF/A, Autodesk DWFPLTCGMTIFFCALSEDMICS and several other file formats.

With ViewCompanion Premium you can convert your files to many different output formats, please check the complete list of supported output formats below.

Your PLT, CGM, Gerber and DWF files can be converted into Autodesk DXF format, which can be read by all popular CAD applications, for example Autodesk AutoCAD™.
With the built-in PDF to CAD tools you can even convert your PDF files into editable DXF, Gerber, CGM or SVG files.Both batch convert and batch print is included. The software can be configured to monitor a user defined folder, and all files copied to that folder will be automatically printed using your settings.Add markups, also known as comments or annotations, to your documents.

You can merge multiple files of different formats to a single multi-page PDF, DWF or TIFF file.
ViewCompanion can split a multipage PDF, TIFF or DWF file into multiple files. You may split a PDF file either based on a maximum number of pages per file or based on the maximum file size for each output file.

ViewCompanion Premium is a software utility that provides users with a simple means of viewing, editing, converting and comparing AutoCAD files and a pretty long list of image formats.

The installation process is a piece of cake, as it does not come with any unpleasant surprises, while the interface you are greeted by encloses a pretty clean and well-organized design. It consists of a tabbed ribbon, multiple buttons, a quick access toolbar and a few panes which enable you to view the uploaded items, a toolbox and a folder structure.

In addition to that, comprehensive Help contents are supported, thus enabling all types of users to find their way around it, including those with little or no previous experience with the IT world.

This software application supports, at import, a pretty long list of formats, such as PLT, HPG, PDF, EPS, DWF, DXF, CGM, TIF, BMP, GIF, JPG, PNG, DCX, TGA, ZIP and VPR, while export is possible using PDF, PS, DWF, DXF, CAL, GBR, GIF, PLT, PCX, PNG, SVG, EMF, BMP, WMF and TIF file extensions.

When it comes to editing, you can easily draw freehand, insert geometrical shapes (rectangle, ellipse, polyline etc.), text, notes and QR codes, as well as crop images and use a highlighter or erases.

Moreover, you can compare any two files, regardless of their format, and generate multiple reports in the same time, using a CSV or XML format, for further analysis and use. Batch conversions is supported, using the formats aforementioned at import and export, as well as batch printing.

To wrap it up, ViewCompanion Premium is a pretty efficient piece of software. It does not hamper the computer’s performance, the response time is good, the import and export capabilities are quite impressive and there are sufficient options integrated to keep you busy for quite a while.

With ViewCompanion you can measure dimension lengths and areas. All measurements can be done using snap to drawing geometry to give the highest accuracy. Calibration of the measurement tools is available to make sure you get correct results even if your drawings are not scaled 1:1. The measurement results may be exported to either a Excel Workbook (XLSX) or to a CSV file which can be opened by any spreadsheet application.

PDF to CAD conversion is includedUse ViewCompanion to compare files of different revisions and visualize the differences. You can compare all supported file formats, including PDF. A multipage PDF file can be compared page by page.Annotate your files using markup elements like text, highlight, dimension line, area measurement, stamp, freehand, arrow, barcode, symbol, image and more.ViewCompanion support symbol libraries that make it easy to add frequently used symbols as markups. You can create your own symbol libraries from any image file. You will also find a few libraries available for you to use after installation.All markup elements will be stored in a separate file and the original file will be left unmodified. The markup elements can be included when the viewed file is printed or converted.AVI files can be created by using the Movie Maker tool. This tool will let you add multiple files, of all the different formats ViewCompanion supports, to a movie. Each page from all the added files will be converted to a single frame in the movie.
