Xrefs fail to attach when relative path is set.

I'm having trouble attaching some files using the relative setting, only able to attach via Full path.... Others no issue whatsoever.   This project requires that the file structure before the root is ignored (Relative path) as multiple people are working together on the same project.  Anyone have the same issue? Suggestions??

 

Thanks!

Are the files that you are xref'ing in on a network?  I have similar issues when they are on a network, but not when they are local.

No they are all local...  we interface using a local cloud mirrored and synced on our hardrive.

Are the Xref's are referenced with other Xref's. If that's the case you might have to select the path of Xref & just press enter to relocate that. See if this helps.

I don't quite understand your response....

 

Are you asking if the files I am attempting to attach via the relative function have attached reference files that are unresolved?

What is the full path (type it here)?

What is the relative path you wish to apply (type it here)?

 

Nothing like seeing what you see to solve a problem, or at least try.
