"OPEN FILE" DIALOG BOX IMPROVEMENT

41 Views, 2 Replies

Is there some way to get "Workgroup" listed first in the "Locations" box in the "Open File" dialog box? "Local" and "Workspace" files are on top which requires an extra mouse click to get to the "Workgroup" listing before I can select a file to open. This doesn't seem like a big deal unless you happen to open several hundered files a day. Since the project files are stored in the "Workgroup", it seems like it should have priority and be the default location when opening files.
Thanks for the help.

Only solution I've been able to work out on this is when you create the project (or edit it after it's created) to have the paths listed in the order you want to see them. For example, I have

Workspace - nothing listed
Local Search Paths - nothing listed
Workgroup Search Paths
- Workgroup (for my current project work)
- Another Path (named and pointing to a folder from which I am borrowing/copying parts)
Library Search Paths
- Library (pointing to our standard library of fasteners, etc).

I've found that whatever order the paths are shown on the "Project" creation page, that is the order shown on the "Open" page.
