Meridian includes application links for the most popular applications used for engineering. The links can also be used in remote mode with PowerWeb. Meridian Cloud users can install the components by downloading the installation package from the Meridian Cloud home page.
Meridian integrates extensively with popular CAD applications. The CAD application links support powerful features such as automatic bidirectional title block data exchange, plotting sheet set support, external reference management, solid modeling assembly management, advanced viewing capabilities, and more.
Meridian also integrates well with the Microsoft Office family of products. You can store files created in any of the Office applications in a Meridian vault, even Outlook email messages and attachments, and view most of them without the need for the Office applications themselves or special viewers. Hyperlinks between Office documents are maintained throughout the document life cycle.
The application links are only available when they have been correctly installed on your computer. The links are installed by default if the linked application is already installed at the time that you install Meridian Enterprise on the PC. If you install the application after installing Meridian, the link will not be installed. You must then run the Meridian setup program and select the Modify option to install the link for the new application. If you later upgrade the linked application (including updates to AutoCAD via the Communications Center) and if a new version of the link is required to function correctly with the upgrade, you must also upgrade Meridian.
