Path setting for LDS files

160 Views, 1 Replies

One user in a group of 3 edit Specs. 

Two users are having no problem with Specs and LDS files on a network shared drive of the Content folder. 

One user gets the error msg, "Could not find file 'C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\...\...\...\SpecEditor\LDStyles\'.  However, when we check in the Spec editor the Tools\Modify Shared Content folder, it is pointing to the network share folder.


Where is the setting coming from?  Is it buried in the spec somewhere?  Any ideas?

Been digging on this and I now have a more refined question.

In the HELP, various references to the LDStyles being stored down the Content folder path, yet I keep finding mine going to the C:\ProgramData folder path.  Even when I have the Content assigned to network folder, the LDStyles stays on the local harddrive.

So is the HELP misleading me or is there a setting I am missing?
