DWGLogger

DWGLogger

Win32 and 64, English

LexmanCAD
Maintain drawing-embedded logs of the save history of your drawings detailing User, Date, Time, #Entities, and File path/name.

General Usage Instructions

Use the ribbon button or invoke "LCAD_DISPLAYLOG" at the command line to consult the save log or to export it to a .CSV file.

DWGLogger works quietly in the background becoming active only when Autodesk® AutoCAD® issues a command to save a drawing in order to update its log.

Logs are embedded in the drawing as a non-graphical text entry inside a custom dictionary and remain light weight even when the save log becomes lengthy (akin to having a .txt file embedded in your AutoCAD drawing).

To maintain a comprehensive log of a drawing that is worked on by multiple users it is important that each user has DWGLogger loaded before they begin working.

A user working on a drawing who does not have DWGLogger installed will not harm the log for subsequent users who do have DWGLogger installed, but, his or her save history will not show up in the log.

Additional Information

Known Issues

Under a combination of very unique circumstances it is possible that the logger records more than 1 entry for a single save. If this happens you will notice multiple entries bearing identical information when consulting the log. If this happens to you, please get in touch via email so that I may understand your settings and adjust accordingly.
