Rasterex releases RxView & RxHighlight R12

Rasterex Software, a global leader within document viewing and collaboration, today released version R12 of their desktop viewers for Windows.

Version R12 is a major upgrade. Besides supporting AutoCAD 2011, it also has a strong focus on MicroStation DGN. Full support for DGN 3D and complete XREF handling for DGN V8, finally brings the quality of the MicroStation filter close to the same level as our AutoCAD filter is known for. With a new scenic Windows 7/Carbon visual style and a lot of new features and enhancement, version 12 really brings something new to the table.

RxView allows users to view & print more than 250 different file formats - without the design software installed on the machine. CAD drawings, 3D CAD models, plot-files, PDFs, Office documents, raster images and scanned drawings.

RxHighlight is the same software installation as RxView, but through the license file, it opens up for advanced functions like redlining, markup, conversion, batch processes and text search & extraction, for collaboration between team members.
