Hyperlinks Problem - ADR 2013

1806 Views, 14 Replies

I downloaded and installed the latest version of ADR(2013). I see that that hyperlinks from old files, generated with relative paths from Autocad, do not work any more. They used to work fine with ADR 2012.

 

It seems to me that the new ADR does not read the relative paths correctly and appends the relative path to the directory address of the original file. 

 

Does anyone else experience this behaviour?

I may not be able to upload a document in the forum. Is there an email or ft site that I can use?

The ftp login information you provided does not work for some reason.

Hi vgottipa,

 

Thank you for reporting this issue.

 

It's a regression from ADR 2012. I logged this defect in our database (ADRPO-1414) and we will consider fixing it in future releases.

 

Any further question please let me know.

Relative paths not working / failing in Autodesk 2013 Design Review is not a small issue.  Autodesk Design Review has been a fantastic product that has allowed us to introduce AutoCAD to our clients and recommend AutoCAD as a design platform for many clients who are otherwise indifferent.  We have encouraged multiple clients to use Design Review to access information information we provide on their projects and we use AutoCAD to produce these documents.  The packages we provide are completely dependant on relative paths working correctly in Autodesk Design Review.

 

The markup capability of Design Review trumped Bentley View when deciding which program to to recommend our clients choose for this package (AutoCAD or Microstation).  Hyperlinks failing when using relative paths completely sinks Design Review / AutoCAD for the purposes outlined above.  It simply will not work.  We are currently forced to inform all of our existing AutoCAD based clients of the defect and direct them to an old release or suggest a Bentley View / Microstation platform.  Our clients love the markup capability of Autodesk Design Review and we would prefer to recommend it for that reason.

 

Again, this is not a small issue.  Please let us know if Autodesk intends to resolve this issue and if so, when we can expect it to be repaired if it has not already been corrected.

This is a huge problem for our company also. Our entire library was dependent on these hyperlinks for navigation amongst files, and it has become a very slow process with ADR 2013.  I had hoped to uninstall ADR2013 and reinstall ADR2012, but apparently that is no longer available either.  If  you cannot fix it, please give access to ADR2012.  This is a very big problem and should be fixed prior to any future releases........PLEASE!!

My company also relies on dwf's with embedded hyperlinks.  A hotfix should be provided asap.  Thanks!
