Edit ACAD files in Buzzsaw

i am quite new in Buzzsaw program so this might be dumb question.


I will give access to Buzzsaw project file to some user. This user is in group that have Edit permisions on this project file. But when i find a .dwg file in this project and try to edit it he can't. Buzzsaw ask him to download it in Working wolder, that's correct, but then it is automatically opened in DWG TrueView. How can i change that these files should be opened in AutoCAD? 


Because this user needs to edit this file, save it and upload it back to Buzzsaw with notice of changed version in Buzzsaw.


*I tried this in downloaded Buzzsaw client.



Thx! :smileyhappy:

Please try to perform editing in Buzzsaw after AutoCad Start at the beginning.

Hi -


Try opening the file directly from Autocad (File/Open/DWG, then choose Buzzsaw from the list on the left), and create a shortcut to your Buzzsaw site. When finished editing, you can save it back to Buzzsaw via the same method. Please see the attachment below.


In addition, please feel free to contact the Buzzsaw support group directly for any issues around Buzzsaw:
