Relative Pathing Help

92 Views, 3 Replies

I am trying to change my Xrefs from full pathing to relative pathing.

 

If the file i am trying to xref is located at the following location

 

\\hfg.int\departments\Production\06 HA\01 Structural\Fabrication Engineering\Drawing Office\Previous Projects\A11001

 

What do i put for the file path for it to be relative pathed?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi,

We can't tell you that as long as we don't know the path your current dwg-file is stored. (That's the way "relativ" works, you need at least two informations to declare a relation between them).

The dwg file is currently saved in the same location, but once the drawing has been issued it will be saved at the location specified with \issued drawings at the end.

Hi,

In that case the XRef-Name is

.\A11001.dwg

(if A11001.dwg is the name of the XRef)
