I am trying to write a macro for a button that when I press, it goes to a certain folder on a server. Normally when you click on the "open" button, it takes you to the last file location. I want that to be ignored an goes to a certain folder.
Any help appreciated.
Add that folder (and any otghers) to the sidebar on the OPEN dialog box, then just click it when you need it. It's a built-in feature.
You can also delete the ones in the sidebar you don't want, and you can rearrange them too in any order you desire.
Also look into REMEMBERFOLDERS variable and your start-in folder in your AutoCAD launch shortcut for a second built-in option, although I am a fan of the above tip.
Look up FILEDIA Variable (and turn it off in the amcro, back on at the end of the macro).
Look up OPEN command and test it at the command line with the above variable off, and write down your steps and everything you type.
Now you have the basis for a macro.
Start writing and testing.
