The vacation policy for Autodesk employees in the United States is 2 weeks per year. Unlike other American companies, employees don't earn additional vacation as they work more years with the company. What we get instead is a 6-week sabbatical... Continue reading

Typepad HTML Email With regard to the Vault question, my guess is that we would update Autodesk Vault to include the cloud-based DWF viewing technology so that Vault could handle larger DWF files. In the case of Vault, the technology would simply be applied at the intranet level. In other words, the Vault server would host the technology. So there is no need to continue to work on Autodesk Design Review. --------------------------------------------------- Scott Sheppard Program Manager Autodesk Labs: It’s Alive in the Lab DIRECT 415-233-9772 MOBILE 480-239-5346 Autodesk, Inc.

Typepad HTML Email From Shaan Hurley: It is my understanding that LT does not have Citrix support for the same reason it does not have network licensing as it was intended for smaller teams or individual users and full AutoCAD was where they put the extra technology development and support for network or larger professional teams. I would imagine if LT had network support or Citrix it would cost more and many of the standard LT users wouldn’t be happy about that.

The point of my article is that Design Review is frozen, which some consider to be dead, but DWF is not dead because Autodesk will be creating cloud-based solutions that use DWF. There are no plans to make a 64-bit version of Autodesk Design Review. We will create cloud solutions that handle models that are so large that they can only be created, viewed, and marked up in a 64-bit environment. Sent from Scott's iPhone

Sometimes being an Autodesk Gallery Ambassador has its perks. By the way, we chose the name ambassador instead of docent, because the correct way to address an ambassador is "Your excellency." That never happens but sometimes our tour guests are... Continue reading

On that we agree. Design Review is not for the long term. Only keep it until Autodesk 360 is equivalent or better. By the way I routinely answer questions from people who still use Volo View and even WHIP! Sent from Scott's iPhone

My mention of future capabilities is an explanation as to why there is no Design Review 2014. Autodesk Vault 2014 and Autodesk Design Review 2013 work correctly today. You are free to stick with those versions until the end of time.
