MiWaNiZa, Can you give a little more information on what you are looking for? Are you trying to force a working folder?

That's right.

While I'm creating link A' (in F' folder) to file A (situated in the А folder) and checking it out (from the Inventor, for example), the file in my workplace appears in folder where A file is located, instead A' location.

 

It would be logical to download A file and A' link to it. And then link them using hard links. Example diagram is shown below.

This feature would also support  and allow Buzzsaw Sync to place the published linked File in a equivalent Dashboard folder in Buzzsaw.

 

A good example is Transmittal Files that would be shared with specific Suppliers/Contractors and Customers. Current Buzzsaw Sync requires the Buzzsaw Admin to provide access to Suppliers/Contractors and Customers at the DWG folder level instead of the Linked File Folder location
