Xrefs of DWGs on a cloud server

94 Views, 3 Replies

When retrieving DWG files from a cloud service, the xref objects are only available to the individual who actually attached them to the drawing.  Others permitted to share the drawing only see the path name of the objects that contains the identity of the author in the location of the xref.  Can anyone explain how to make those xref images available to everyone with access.  Thanks

Not sure about this, if the XREF is an overlay, then change it to attach.

The problem is the path on the cloud server. It usually includes a reference to the specific user that attached it. Have you tried using 'no path' or 'relative path' on the connection yet? With cloud servers I don't know if that works.

Thanks for the insight. I tried all 3 options, relative, absolute and no
path and the xref(s) are listed in the xref manager but path comes up as
not found when opened by another user. Cloud server staff was stumped and
said it must be a software issue.
