Linked projects after a copy...

Hi all, 

 

I mistakenly linked two projects during a copy (I forgot to click copy), but I no longer know which project is linked with which other project 😩.

 

Is there a way to know which project is linked with which other? if not it would be a good idea for future updates right?

 

Thanks by advance

Hi @RitchieParis 

I hope you are doing well!

For your question, I guess the Uses list can help you to check which sch and 2d PCB is used in this project.

I hope it can help.

If you have followed the discussions here and looked at the bugs support gets reported, you would know that this functionality is severely broken.
Even if you remove links the "official" and documented way, you STILL have both 2D and 3D boards, components e.t.c. claiming they are "In Use". Although they are not.

There is even a official workaround to this that suggest making a TRASH project and move stuff that cannot be unlinked to that.

Back to the drawing board, you have LOTS of work to do!

Hi my friend Jesper how are you ? 

 

Really I didn't know that ! 😱😱 I think this is what I have, because it linked with himself and I can't do anything.

 

Thanks

Well, I guess deleting the files (moving them to a TRASH project) isn't really what you want.
You just want them unliked and free, so you can link them with what you want.
I have wanted that MANY times.
But, Autodesk is the boss and decide what we can and cannot do with our OWN FILES!!!!


I'm afraid there is no way to COMPLETELY unlink a file.
