SolidWorks Rename Search Path Control

Question asked by Daen Hendrickson on Oct 20, 2015

I am using SW2014 SP5.

 

While trying to use the SolidWorks / Rename function in Windows explorer, the paths that are searched for related files start on a network drive (library) - NOT the same folder as the file being renamed. It eventually gets to the local folder but the time....!

 

What controls the search paths SW Rename uses?

 

In Options / File Locations / Referenced Documents my first listing is my local working area followed by my network libraries.

In Options / File Locations / Search Paths my second listing is again my local working area followed by my network libraries. My first listing appears outside of my control and points to a local area for MS Visio.

 

Does anyone know how to get the rename function to start search locally FIRST and then expand outward later?

 

Thanks,

 

Daen
