Promote Data References When Using eTransmit

I know that data referenced drawings can be included in an eTransmit.  However the drefs don't appear to repath when doing so.  Does anyone know of a way to promote data references using eTransmit?


For context, we are trying to find a good way to archive all the project files at certain milestones.  eTransmit does a good job of gathering up all the files referenced in a sheet set.  It appears to repath the acad xrefs but the drefs still refer back to the working model files.

Are you actively selecting the option to remove Xref paths in eTRANSMIT? It's not automatic, you actually have to select the option under Transmittal Setups>Modify>PATH OPTIONS section of the Modify Transmitall Setup pop-up.

For DRefs, you'll likely get bett information in the Civil3D forum, rather than the generic Acad one.

did anyone ever find a solution to this? I'd like to do it either way... there's no option to promote or repath data references in c3d 2014.


Also, I prefer to specify to use organized folder structure but it just sticks my data references in the root folder.
