    Default relocating the drawings with the sheetset?

    I need to move a set of drawings from my local drive to our office server. Is there a way to quickly and easily change where SSM looks for these drawings? I want to avoid rebuilding the sheet set list.

    I don't believe its an easy fix without involving a 3rd party application. I see JTB World has a Sheet Set Manager Path Edit tool.

    Typically I keep the sheet files in the same folder as the .dst -- that seems to minimize my re-pathing issues.

    As long as the .dst and the .dwg files stay in the same *relative* location, it should work fine.

    For example, if they are like this now:

    C:\
    ----\Projects
    ---- ----\34567 <--- .dst file here
    ---- ---- ----\DWG <--- .dwg file(s) here


    and you move them to this

    \\server
    ----\share
    ---- ----\clients
    ---- ---- ----\Projects
    ---- ---- ---- ----\34567 <--- .dst file here
    ---- ---- ---- ---- ----\DWG <--- .dwg file(s) here


    It should still work fine. In fact, this is how I *copy* a project now, by picking up the standard drawings and the .dst file and copying them to a new project folder.
