Windows Desktop Search finds text within DWG's

AutoCAD 2006 supports search of text within drawings from Windows Explorer. I tried this also with the newly released Windows Desktop Search and it worked great as you can see. TEXT, MTEXT, ATTRIBUTES, LAYER NAMES and more can be found.

    For DWG search to work AutoCAD 2006 has to be installed. Not sure if Autodesk well release a freestanding plugin. But it would be a good idea IMHO.

    I'd like to mention first I work at a company in the Netherlands called CAD & Company.

    Autodesk has made RealDWG available for selected companies to add native DWG support to their products. You do not need to have AutoCAD installed to use this product.

    Our new release DWG IFilter 2007 is now build around RealDWG. It will be available Q1 2007, a 40 day trial period will be available. One of the features we still need to decide on is to have a free desktop version to support Windows Desktop Search.

    Please check\ifilter for current status and availability.

    ... and now you can download a free trial of our new DWG IFilter 2007 at
    I hope to release our final within a few days. The 2007 version also works great with Windows Desktop Search!
