ALBUM

README.TXT for Album Version 1.2
--------------------------------
Author: Horst G. Brueckner, netnice, 91323-Adelsdorf,

PO Box 6, Germany

Phone: 0049 9195 94660

Album displays the DWG files of a selected directory as
a standalone app. Only the bitmap-thumbnail of the file
is isplayed. You can drag and drop files with the mouse
onto AutoCAD or open a file with a double click. Alb is
written to the Window NT operating system and has been
tested with Windows NT workstation 4.0 german.
If you are interested - source (VC++) is available.

Files:
alb.exe the executable
alb.hlp small helpfile
readme.txt this file

New in Version 1.2:
-------------------
- R13 and R14 previews are displayed
- if you configured R13 to store an additional WMF preview the
WMF preview is used with the right mouse button
- you can configure your own doubleclick command to use
a different configuration file (e.g. Mechanical desktop)
- the position of the main window is restored at startup
- if you have installed R14 and R13 all doubleclicks start R14

I Hope this helps

Stuart
