Setting Attachment path default for XRef, PDF, Image, & DWF

Looking for registry keys to control the default attachment type (Full, Relative, & No Path) for XRef, Image, PDF, & DWF in the attachment dialog. (I'm using C3D but this applies to plain ACad also).


For XRef the key is:


The value is "PathType" DWORD = 1 for relativepath


For Image the key is:


The value is "ImagePathType" DWORD = 1 for relative path (NOTE: this value didn't exist, once I created it, C3D used the key for both storing the value when closing C3D the reading the value when presenting the attach dialog).


Looking for keys that control PDF & DWF attachments.

What would the FULL Registry Path be for AutoCAD Mechanical 2014 under Product Design Suite 2014 to update XrefPath to Relative....?
