    Default Change Path to XREF

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have a drawing which has a reference to an external drawing in it for the company logo which is used in the title block. We have moved the location of the company logo to a new drive and thus I need to modify the properties of the path. But when I open up the properties on this it does not allow me to change the path. I found the only way around this was to delete it and start over using the new path but I have to believe I missed something in changing the path.
    It's deja vu, all over again.

    Did you try changing it throguh the external references manager? Is the field/button greyed out or does it just not update?

    Here is a screen shot of the XREF Property I want to change. The option to change the path is not available. That is I cannot select the text in the Saved Path field to change it.

    You need to scroll down farther in the details section or lengthen the dialog box. Hit the elipses (...) at the end of the "Found At" row to browse to new location.

    Lol, I was thinking you meant that it was greyed out, not that you just couldn't find the option...
