    I'm trying to work out whether AutoSketch will be suitable for my needs;

    I am sometimes sent building plans which have been divided up across multiple drawings (so, for instance, the ground floor may comprise four separate dwf or dwg drawing files).

    I need to be able to collate them into one larger drawing and plot/print this out to fit a chosen paper size.

    This will include removing drawing title blocks etc.; basically cutting and pasting.

    Functions such as measurement etc. would be useful but are not essential.

    Thanks for reading!

    Thanks very much for your prompt response Ric.

    Any idea of an alternative? I'm afraid AutoCadLT cannot be justified.

    An alternative to what....??? I will ALWAYS push for LT (at least) before I
    push for AutoSketch. AutoSketch will however do what you want to do.

    LT and all higher-end AutoCAD product will not open .dwf files....if that's
    what you're asking. If that's not what you're asking, I don't understand
    the question.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear.

    I now know that Autosketch will do what I want for dwg files, but not for dwf types.

    As AutoCadLT is out of the question that leaves me with a problem (I shouldn't really ask for alternatives on Autodesk's site).

    Has anyone got any experience of any 'cheap' dwf to dwg convertor programmes?

    I know of comes from Canada. However, it only works under

    There may be others. May I suggest doing a Google search. Keep in mind
    though, AutoSketch's raw format isn't .dwg and that's where .dwf-.dwg
    conversion stops.
