A new feature is available in Digital InterPlot v1.1 for creating and viewing Portable Plan Set. This is a powerful tool for creating and distributing electronic plots and their attributes, along with the Digital InterPlot viewer, all in one file without the need for an Internet connection. Delivery can take place via a CD, FTP or E-mail. This feature allows the distribution of electronic plots to every corner of the world, even where Web access is not available.
After submitting the plots to a Digital InterPlot Archive, the new Portable Plan Set utility (CreatePPS.exe) can be used to browse an archive, and "add" the plot to a Portable Plan Set collection. When the collection is complete, the Portable Plan Set is ready for creation. This utility will create an executable that contains the plots with their attributes. This Portable Plan Set can be distributed to allow remote users to view and print the contained plot sheets.
Here are the steps to create and view a Portable Plan Set:
The CreatePPS.exe requires Internet Explorer 5.0 and above, Netscape is not supported.
The viewer requires Internet Explorer 4.0 and above
