Adding a .DWF file to Power Point

This is a pretty cool tip for those of you who may need to do Power Point presentations. You can add a .DWF file to your PPT  presentations so that you can navigate within it as you can when you are in Design Review or AutoCAD.

.DWF files are Autodesk’s version of the popular PDF file format. You can create DWF files  while in AutoCAD and send these files to people who do not have AutoCAD. The program that they need to open these files is called “Design Review” and is free of charge. It is available at Autodesk’s website [found here].

For this tip to work, both the computer that creates the Power Point file and the computer that will be used to show the presentation need to have Power Point (of coarse) and Design Review.
