Professional viewer and image free software

PVG.view is a stand-alone program for the representation and printing of print and plot files.

In contrast to most programs generally used to read PDF files, PVG.view is designed for professionals, who use vector graphics, whether they be drawings, plots or used for data processing. As a multi-document interface, PVG.view is fully multi-threading capable. No additional conversion software is required. PVG.lib converts in excellent quality and the file sizes remain reduced to a minimum. Furthermore, the application does not just enable viewing or output of vector graphics but rather offers many further functions.

Handling of graphic data is thus very comfortable. Files are displayed in the preview and can be opened or added to other files by Drag and Drop. Different viewing functions are even still available in the application. A magnifying glass tool for a stepless zoom. Text can be marked within a document on a line or block basis. The settings that you select are stored in XML format. This saves precious time if you frequently use similar functions or settings. The application provides many useful analysis tools for measurement purposes.
