    Default eTransmit with Linked files

    Anyone know how to transmit (or transfer) a file with links and bring the linked files with it? I have the "Include files from data links" box checked in the Transmittal Setups. I've tried adding the files manually to the file tree. Is there a way to bring the linked files similar to how the External References come over and loaded with eTransmit?

    Thanks

    Are you referring to Revit or ACA? ACA has xref and e-trans works just fine for me.
    If you are referring to Revit, please let me know so I can move your thread to the correct location.
    Thanks

    I'm referring to AutoCAD MEP. I'm linking image files and it doesn't seem to bring the images with it. I can manually select the image files so that the zipped file contains them, but the link's path is incorrect. Is there a way to get AutoCAD to bring the images over similarly to the way x-refs are brought over and remain attached?

    It looks like I posted this in ACA instead of MEP, I'm guessing this should apply to either. Please move if needed.

    Thanks

    Place the image in the same folder as the drawings and it should work. If it can't find the "Fixed Path" it will look in the folder that the open drawing is in. So if simply place all the drawings and image files in one folder, the incorrect paths shouldn't matter.
    Also, I don't believe that you can bind an image file to a drawing. E-trans should grab the image file and place it in the folder along with your other x-refs, fonts and printer configs and such. But you can't (As far as I know) Bind the image to a drawing.
    Make sense. Let me know if you'd like me to try and explain a little more.
    Hope this helps.
