not sure about system variables, but you can always copy the drawing to your local machine and unhook the network cable.

just a thought that might help.

if that's the solution then forget it. other people has to share my alignments and profiles.

what a stupid function the promote is.

I'm replying to this to see if there are any new answers.  The original question was posted in 2007.

 

I'm working with C3D 2010 and synchronizing references when I open a drawing is bogging down my system and I can't open the file.

 

I've tried recover.  It runs an audit, finds no errors, then starts synchronizing the references and I get nowhere.

 

The annoying part is that I don't need the references sychronized.  I KNOW that they haven't changed since I saved.  In fact, I don't even need them in the drawing.  I needed them there earlier, but I don't need them there permanently.  Now I can't even load this drawing as an xref in another drawing because it keeps getting stuck on synchronize.  And I can't remove the references because I can't open the file.

 

Please, please, please... Somebody from Autodesk please address this!

 

Oh, and promote is useful in some situations.  But that is NOT a good solution to this problem.

All I know is that this is total BS.  I have asking Autodesk for the last 8 years to give us way to open these g.d. drawings without references, and they've never figured it out.  I've been sitting here for 15 minutes waiting on a drawing THAT IS ON MY DESKTOP to open while trying to synchronize references.

 

FIGURE IT OUT.

They can figure it out, it's just that not enough people have asked for that feature to be implemented. At least, that's my take on it.

Sounds like your issue is that syncronization is slow and not that things are syncing upon open. While I can't offer any meaningful suggestions on how to speed up sync, I can suggest renaming the source files temporarily so they cannot be found so the sync doesn't happen.

I have the opposite problem, my drawing opens but won't synchronize a few of the data references until I manually sync them.  This makes publishing an issue because when I publish, it opens the drawing from scratch (with unsynched data refs) and plots, but the end result has my profiles way off.

 

Any way to get it fully synched upon opening?
