Changing the path for external references

If the file associated with an external reference is moved to a different directory or renamed, the program displays a message indicating that it cannot load the external reference. You can re-establish the link to the file by doing any of the following.

  • Change the path for the external reference.
  • Specify additional directories for progeCAD to search. This is especially helpful if you have several external references that have moved to a new directory.

To change the external reference path

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > Xref Manager.
    • On the Tools toolbar, click the Xref Manager tool ().
    • Type xrm and then press Enter.
  2. Select the external reference whose path you want to change.
  3. In Xref Path, do one of the following:
    • Enter a new filename or location.
    • Click Browse to locate and select the referenced drawing.

    progeCAD reloads the specified external reference automatically.


NOTE You cannot recursively reference a drawing from the same original drawing.


To change the search paths for all external references in the drawing

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Insert > Xref Manager.
    • On the Tools toolbar, click the Xref Manager tool ().
    • Type xrm and then press Enter.
  2. In Additional Xref Search Paths, do one of the following:
    • Enter a new directory and its path. Separate multiple paths with a semicolon, for example, c:\My Drawings;d:\My Drawings\Backup.
    • Click Browse to locate and select a directory.

    progeCAD searches the specified directories; any found external references are reloaded automatically.
