Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video XREF server path mapping, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2016 New Features.
- As the structure and naming for drives and volumes…is different for Mac OS X and Windows,…locations of externally referenced files…can remain the same, but the path the operating…system uses to get to that file can be different.…Mac OS X might be looking for Volume Project,…while Windows would try to get to the same location…by loading the P drive or P:…The file hasn't moved or been renamed, but the path…to get there is different for each operating system.…
In the past, this could cause problems…if your reference files are loaded using Full Path,…which means that AutoCAD requires…the entire path from drive to file…to always be the same.…If each operating system uses…a different way to name drives or volumes,…AutoCAD won't be able to find the referenced file…loaded from the opposite operating system.…In AutoCAD for Mac 2016, when a file is opened…that contains external references that it cannot locate,…a new option has been added…to the Unresolved Reference Files dialogue box.…
