Favorites management for Design Center

292 Views, 8 Replies

With the 2013 LT version, is there now a way to really manage the favorites for the Design Center ?

 

I still have this issue where only the first created shorcut stays, all others only appears in the explorer window after the click for "organize fovorites..." see attachment.

 

Is it AutoCAD or Windows ?

 

Thanks.

Are you telling us you have more content in the Autodesk subfolder of your FAVORITES location than what you show in the screenshot?

Or do you just need to click up one folder to FAVORITES to see your entire collection of shortcuts? See attached.

Sorry for not being clear enough...

 

In the Design Center, I have selected 4 folders and right-clicked on them to "add to favorites".

 

Now If I come back to Design Center and Click to icon "favorites" only "LIB-DET" appears even with a "refresh".

 

And if I click "manage favorites" all 4 are in the explorer window.

 

I want all 4 to appear when I click favorites icon in Design Center !

Seems to work here if I do the same as you describe: do you need to force a refresh by closing and restarting ADCENTER perhaps?

Or are the invisible shortcuts on a server or location that is offline at the moment?

Impossible to make it work here...

 

Deleted everything, recreate shorcuts, refresh, close and restart Design Center... no way...

 

I'm stuck with only "LIB-DET"

 

The "invisible "shorcut are not on the server, it's on my PC ! that's even more perturbing.

 

Thanks anyway for the help, I'll consider it solved...

Can you give me an idea where these folders are located on your PC (like are they under your Windows profile, in the programs folder, etc.)?

Also, which Winodws version are you using and are you in a Windows Limited log-in?

So my PC is running Windows 7 Entreprise 64-bit SP1

 

I was installed with Administrator access and rights

 

The Favorites folder is on the C drive (see attachment)
