We had a project folder named A. We created a new project folder named B and copied the AutoCad files from A to B. On one of our workstations if you open a drawing from folder B, then click save as, the dialog opens to folder A.
Not a big problem, but since the files are named the same it can be confusing... Any thoughts?
The computer in question and another one are both set to '1'. I tried changing to '0' but if made no change.
I should note that other folders work fine. It is only the drawings in folder B that do this.
We have the AutoCad that comes with Building Design Suite 2013. Plain AutoCad, not Arch. AutoCad. Not sure what you mean by vertical.
We don't intentionally tie anything to a project or folder within AutoCad. We have a hierarchy of folders for each of our projects/jobs/bids that are regular Microsoft Windows folders.
Although this computer 'thinks' that the drawings in folder B are part of the drawings in folder A...
Vertical autocad? (it sounds silly, but that's what Autodesk calling C3d, Electrical....)
I don't have any idea about BDS 2013, but if 1 PC does it and others don't, you can find out by comparing SETVAR.
Vertical products take the core AutoCAD program and build on top of it, in some cases overriding basic behavior e.g. Map3D, Civil3D, AutoCAD Electrical, AutoCAD MEP, and so on.
Basic AutoCAD has no concept of a "project" or which folders belong to any given set of files or folders, so it doesn't really have a sense of what the "right" folder is. Thats left to the meatware.
