Looking for a reference that shows what the default file path locations are for various AutoCAD user files. Specifically, I had my AutoCAD file paths changed and cannot find where my blocks are saved. I'd like to save the blocks I create in a specific folder. I'd sure appreciate your feedback. Julie
Solved! Go to Solution.
"I had my AutoCAD file paths changed and cannot find where my blocks are saved"
Block = .dwg
You know the name of the blocks? Use ADCENTER or Windows search, it's not that difficult.
Under Tools, Options select the Files tab and highlight Support File Search Path. Pick the Add button then Browse and navigate to where your block drawings are located.
This is the immediate solution to my problem. Still want to know where the blocks for the "BLOCK" command are stored, but I am able to access the blocks when using the "WBLOCK" command. Thank you. This has resolved this issue, but would like further discussion. Julie
Let's clear this mud for you.
Block command write the block to the drawing
Wblock command doesn't access for you to pull the block from anywhere, it writes to the folder you choose.
