Save and PDF at the same time

Here is the news on the PDF when saving macro, it takes up some time on
a save but worth it in the end,

SWup 1.0e released,
no Bluebeam problems anymore, use what ever ps-driver
you have installed. You can also add one attribute to the PDF-filename,
for example "Revision", this way you can create a full PDF-library that
includes all revisions.

I don't mind :-)
btw. I just found one little thing that is irritating in SWup. When I select the printer in options it will be the drawings default printer after the file save. I'll change that tomorrow so that the original printer stays. We still need some paper prints as well, right?

I'm really interested in this SWup but having trouble getting it to run, We are constanstly having to remember to save as pdf when modifying a drawing. We are running SW2004 would this be the reason for SWup not working?

It's possible, I have tested it only with 05 and shortly with 06. I'll try to find a pc with 04 and test it.

And we have a crash. So, there is something that isn't working with 04 in my code...I'll try to figure it out during the weekend. Meanwhile, 1.0e2 has released, it does not change the default printer for the drawings.

In the API AddMenuItem has been changed, I guess that is the reason...let's see if I can change this..still having little bit problems to find a test pc for this one.
