In this video, Shaun Bryant demonstrates various methods of renaming unloaded reference files.
- [Instructor] We're staying in our HostDrawing.dwg file,…and you can see there that…our ExternalReferences.dwg file…is still referenced into the drawing.…So what I'm going to do now is go to…the Insert tab on the ribbon,…and I'm going to go up to the little arrow…on the reference panel,…and open up my ExternalReferences Palette again.…So there's our ExternalReferences reference file.…You can see it's loaded into our HostDrawing.dwg file…at the moment,…and if you look down at the details,…you can see it's using a relative file path.…
Now, what we're going to look at now…is renaming an unloaded reference.…Now, what would normally happen is,…if I right-click on ExternalReferences there and unload it,…don't detach it, just unload it, like so,…you can see there, that obviously, it disappears…from the Host Drawing, which is normal,…but also, as well, now,…if I rename the reference down here in the details,…to say, ExternalReferences001 and Press Enter,…you'll notice, it doesn't automatically reload,…like older versions used to.…
