    Question SSM- unable to create sheet set file..

    Using autocad 2012 with sheet set manager. All of a sudden, I can't create new sheet sets. I can open, edit and publish, NOT create. How can I get SSM to play nice?

    thanks..

    I have been using SSM for a few years now with no problems till now. When I select 'new sheet set..' I get [ssm error 1] to start as normal. Press 'next' and I get [ssm error 2] where I fill out the name & 'store sheet..' is already filled in. Press 'next' then the first error message [ssm error 3] and after I press 'ok' the next error pops up [ssm error 4]. As I said, this only happens when I want to create a new sheet set. I can add new sheet, open drawings from ssm and publish as normal.

    Have you checked in Windows Explorer to see if you can access the Dropbox folder?

    Looks like you do not have write access to that folder.
    Try a different location (such as c:\temp) as a test.

    Changed the directory to one I know I have write access to and I still get those errors. I can still access/change any .dst file I have created, just not create new ones.. something changed and I have no idea what. I haven't changed the way I've been doing things for the past few years.

    Instead of creating a new Sheet Set, can you copy an existing Sheet Set to that location, rename it, open it in AutoCAD, remove the existing linked/grayed/missing sheets, and add that projects Sheets?

    This seems like a permissions issue; I see that you're creating/saving to C:\, but that doesn't mean there's not still an AD, or perhaps Dropbox? permission limitation... More information is needed.

    I've searched the net, and the only suggestion I could find was to repair AutoCAD. That is, assuming you have write rights to the folder.

    It's a permissions thing, not AutoCAD or SSM.
    Can you create or edit a file in that location using any other app?
