    Default Sheet Set Manager can't open Sheet Set File

    I have created a sheet set and the sheet set manager opens it OK for me.

    I saved the sheet set file on the server where our drawing files are also located.

    When my co-worker tried to open the sheet set he sees it listed but the sheet set manager doesn't open it. No sheets are visible for him.

    Does anyone have any ideas why?

    Thanks.

    Have you added the plan sheets to your .DST by using right+click > Import Layout as sheet... ?

    Yes, it all works as it should from my computer. It doesn't work from my co-worker's computer. The dst file is on a server we both access.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Please post a sample picture of what you and your coworker see when SSM is open to the same .DST file.

    Are you opening the .DST via SSM, or is it automatically being opened when you open a drawing from that directory?

    Are the sheets saved to your computer instead of the server?
    If you have a technical question, please find the appropriate forum and ask it there.
    You will get a quicker response from your fellow AUGI members than if you sent it to me via a PM or email.

    are you both using the same pathing to get to the networked drawings and sheet set file? e.g P:\work\projectnumber\ ; or are you using different drive letters, or mixing drive letters and unc names?

    We are using the same pathing.

    Today I tried opening the sheetset on a third person's computer and it worked OK there.

    So, it works as it should on 2 out of 3 computers.

    When your co-worked tries to open the sheet set --- are you talking about opening the .DST file in the Sheet Set Manager palette? If (s)he can't open it, is there any error message? There are 3 or 4 more unanswered questions in this thread - it would help everyone help you if you provided answers...

    Thanks for your replies.

    I added the plan sheets to my .DST by using right+click > Import Layout as sheet... ?

    We are opening the .DST via SSM.

    I think that covers previous unanswered questions.

    When he tries opening the .DST file in the Sheet Set Manager palette there is no error message, the SSM just shows no sheets (nothing happens) when he selects the .DST file to open.
