Subject: Working with other programs and computers

CADdirect offers great flexibility in its capability to be used with other programs. You can include an CADdirect drawing in a Microsoft® Word document or insert a Microsoft® Excel spreadsheet containing a parts list into an CADdirect drawing. To include CADdirect drawings in other programs and documents from other programs in CADdirect drawings, you either link or embed them. You can also save Intelli­CAD drawings in other file formats that can be used directly with other programs or send CADdirect drawings to coworkers via e-mail.
