DWGsync is a .NET utility for synchronized zoom/pan of multiple DWGs.

General Usage Instructions

The DWGsync module contains several commands - as documented above. You can start them via the command line, the ribbon, or the toolbar attached to the master drawing.

The DWGsync toolbar attached to the master drawing can be used to control DWGsync - the "reset" icon re-initializes the master and slave views, the checkbox switches the live-link On or Off (the same as the ScrollLock key on your keyboard), the "refresh" icon performs the DWGSYNCUPD command, the "exit" icon switches DWGsync off.
