Support File Search Path

Recommended Posts

I was wondering...if I have a list of subfolders in a single location, can I load ONLY the root folder into AutoCad's support file search path? Will this include all the subfolders when AutoCad is looking for particular files?

No, AutoCAD will not search subdirectories (unless something has changed without my knowledge in recent version updates). Every directory needs to be path'ed. You shouldn't have more than a handful at most so if you do in fact have an extensive amount of directories, or sub-directories, it's best to reconsider your folder conventions with the files you're using.

Styk is correct that AutoCAD will not search sub-directories by default... But _you_ can by including the sub-directory name as a prefix via the FINDFILE function.

 

Consider you have a directory, named Parent that has been added to your SFSP. Within the Parent folder, is a Child folder (sub-directory), that contains a file named Foo.bar... So long as \\Parent has been included in SFSP, this will find the desired file path:

 

(findfile "[color=red]Child[/color]\\[color=blue]Foo.bar[/color]")
