I know Reference Manager can edit reference file paths, but what about the utility that was in xpath where you could grab a load of files and globally change the file they were pathed to? Say you are copying a bunch of files for another project and have updated the base file name to something new. Xpath would let you change the path from ..\Base\SitePlan.dwg to ..\Base\BasePlan.dwg., or whatever your new base file name is. Is there a utility out there that does the same?
-XREF command, in a script file or a lisp, then use a free script processor like AUTOSCRIPT to run it through all the files: a core command you should explore to understand how it works and test to ensure you got it.
For automation HELP if you cannot do the above, you need to ask for help in the Customization forum, not in this forum about a dead and long-gone tool:
Remember to let them know what exact version of AutoCAD you are using: it's important.
thanks- I have ScriptPro, so I guess now it's a matter of writing a script that will do it, if I understand your reply. I appreciate the help and will address the other forum if I need more help with the script. thanks again. (we're in MEP and C3D 2012).
