    Default What is the variable for sheet set template file location?

    I know how to set it. It is under Options -> Files -> Template Settings -> Sheet Set Template File Location, but I would like to set it automatically.

    I would also like the variable for "Default Template for Sheet Creating and Page Setup Overides".

    Thanks

    I was able to find the following

    Code:
    (setq AcadFiles
             (vla-get-files
               (vla-get-preferences
             (vlax-get-Acad-Object)
               ) ;_ end of vla-get-preferences
             ) ;_ end of vla-get-files
          ) ;_ end of setq
    
    (setq TemplatePath (vlax-get-property AcadFiles "PageSetupOverridesTemplateFile"))
    I couldnt find a command to set the SheetSet Template Folder Path. the above will return the current path, to set it do the following

    Code:
    (vlax-put-property AcadFiles "PageSetupOverridesTemplateFile" TemplatePath)

    (GETENV "SheetSetTemplatePath");To find current location
    (SETENV "SheetSetTemplatePath" "U:\\Template");To set new location;note the double \\

    PS,
    To find this I set my template folder to "C:\find-me" and then searched my Registry for the "find-me" folder.

    Thumbs up Re: What is the variable for sheet set template file location?

    Hi,

    Not sure if the prior solutions are the simplest.... this is what i use in my acaddoc.lsp to ensure paths are (and stay) correct :

    (setenv "PrinterStyleSheetDir" "ctbpathhere")

    (setenv "PrinterConfigDir" "pc3pathehere")

    (setenv "PrinterDescDir" "pmppathhere")

    (setenv "TemplatePath" "dwgtemplatepathhere")

    (setenv "SheetSetTemplatePath" "sheetsettemplatepathhere")

    (vla-put-QNewTemplateFile (vla-Get-Files (vla-Get-Preferences (vlax-get-acad-object))) "qnewtemplatepathhere")

    (vla-put-PageSetupOverridesTemplateFile (vla-Get-Files (vla-Get-Preferences (vlax-get-acad-object))) "psotemplatepathhere")

    -- remembering that paths have a \\ eg.

    "J:\\AUTOCAD\\SUPPORT"

    "J:\\AUTOCAD\\SUPPORT"
    If I type (getenv "ToolPalettePath"), it tells me that the path is on the C:/.
    When I type (setenv "ToolPalettePath" "J:\\CAD\\Tool Palettes"), it tells me that the path is J:\\CAD\\Tool Palettes.

    Now, when I go into Options or open my Tool Palettes, it's still the ones on the C:/, even after I restart AutoCAD. What am I missing?

    FRAMEDNLV, if you are ever in the Rochester, NY area, let me know, I need to buy you a beer. Your short little post probably just solved 75% of my AutoCAD problems and/or headaches!
