    trouble browsing during pack & go

    Unspecified Unspecified

      In 'Pack & Go', in 'Save to folder', the directory you're currently working in is displayed in a panel, as the default destination directory to write to.


      Yet when you hit Browse, I can't access the directory I need to go to. In the attached image you see a "projecten folder" ; in windows explorer there are many sub folders in the "projecten folder" but through pack and go I cannot acces them, only the current project.

      Is there a maximum number of subfolders SW can handle? BTW we use SW 2013 SP 3.0peng.jpg

          I am facing the same trouble in my CAD office. Whenever that particular 'browse for' dialog box is used you can't browse for any sub directories except for the direct file path to the last file/folder you had open. It is bloody annoying and extremely slow when you have to navigate to a network drive through the 'Network' tree every time.


          It only seems to be a Windows 7 / Vista Issue.


          Two places i have noticed it is used is when you search for default file locations (options) and in the pack and go window.


          Is there a way to add favorites to this 'browse for folder' window? Probably a registry tweak or two...


          Why don't these features use the usual file>open dialog box?
