Auomation of reference files

Auomation of reference files

Auomation of reference files

Is there a quick, automatic way to repath several reference files, rather than one at a time, manually?

RE: Auomation of reference files

Not that I'm aware of, davemWAVE. If you find a way, please post it and I'll do likewise...

RE: Auomation of reference files

Ive think I found how to automate the referencing of design files.  It will only work if when you first attach a reference that SAVE FULL PATH isnt checked! Anyway go to the drop down menu at the top and choose Workspace --> Configuration.  Choose the category on the left that says Primary Search Paths, then on the right select Refernce files, then Select. An explorer type window will open enabling you to choose all appropriate paths.  After each path is selescted, hit Add and it will be listed below under directory list.  When done adding paths, hit Done at the top and a Save dialog box after that.  

This works best when you have to move or copy a job folder that has a slightly different path or standard.  This way it Should find all the referenced files that a seed file has attached.

RE: Auomation of reference files

Type ,<new logical name> twice for the reference align??
