Hi. You seem to know quite a bit about DraftSight. Is there any way to have Windows7 display thumbnails of DS dwg files in the File Explorer when viewing is set to Medium or Large Icons? All I've ever seen with DS is a white paper with the DS logo for the file icon. AutoCAD would show a miniature preview of the file.

Hi John.

My drawings appear as thumbnails, or at least most of them do, with the Draftsight logo superimposed on them.

The only other CAD software I have installed is Autodesk DWG Trueview which I use for plotting (I get many plotting profiles for various people) and I wonder is that why I have a thumbnail preview.

Trueview is a fee download from Autodesk and can be got here:
