I am unable to place folders on Tools, options, file locations, search paths. Why is this always empty? Thanks for any help.
From the Help file;
The PhotoWorks application provides options on the File Locations tab that affect where the software searches for appearance, scene, and decal files.
To set File Locations options:
Click Options (PhotoWorks toolbar) or PhotoWorks, Options.
On the File Locations tab, select from the following options, then click Apply.
Active custom folders. The PhotoWorks application uses appearance files (*.p2m) in this folder first even if the appearance file exists in its original location. This allows you to switch to different appearances with the same name for a model when you switch folders.
appearances in the system are reorganized by common usage to facilitate searches.
Add. Adds a folder to the search path.
Remove. Deletes the selected folder from the search path.
Autoload selected folder. Displays the active custom folder in the tree of the Appearance Editor dialog box.
Suppress standard appearances. Hides the default folders in the tree of the Appearance Editor dialog box so only custom folders appear.
If a stock appearance is assigned in the Appearance Editor or Scene Editor dialog boxes, the software does not hide the default folders even if you select this option. You must assign custom appearances before the default folders disappear.
You can set additional folders for The PhotoWorks application to search when a appearance, scene, or decal file is not found.
Move Up or Move Down. Changes the order of the selected folder.
Search sub-folders. Includes sub-folders of the folders in the list in the search path.
When The PhotoWorks application loads a file, it searches in the following order:
The last location of the file
The replacement folder list
The folder where you last opened a document
The folder of the referencing document
In a part, steps 3 and 4 refer to the same folder. In an assembly with a appearance assigned to a part, step 3 is the folder of the assembly that you opened. Step 4 is the folder of the part that references the appearance.
The folders defined in the File locations list
After you added folders to the search locations, did you save your option settings using the Copy Settings Wizard? If not you'll lose your option changes after closing and reopening SW.
