rtext info changes with PUBLISH command

We use an in-house plotstamp (not the acad plotstamp) which uses rtext to show the file path and name. It works fine under all circumstances EXCEPT when we plot using the Publish command. The output from Publish shows the file path as the C:\Documents and Settings\... where the acad2005 software is installed instead of the correct network drive path where the dwg files are located.

Is there a secret setting somewhere that will keep Publish from changing the rtext? If we switch from rtext to fields, would that eliminate the problem?

Try this


in the publish dialig box, remove all sheets from the default list & add / re-add the required drawing/layouts you wish to publish.


this seems to force autocad to source the files from their correct location & not c:\documents and settings\ LOCALS......
