XPATH 2005
« on: November 03, 2004, 10:29:09 AM »
I posted this before, but nobody knew what I was talking about.

Xpath has vanished from 2005, does anybody know if there is a different version, I don't think so, as I think it was an express tools function.

It is really usefull for changing multiple xref path locations, i.e if moving xrefs from 1 folder or drive to another!!!

cheers.

Try Reference Manager -- it's included with 2004+.

No that's just for xref's attached to the drawing you have open.

It is a tool that lets you list loads of drawings and shows the path's of the xrefs and then lets you change the paths.

I think it came with 2000 & 2002, has vanished in 2004 & 2005.

Och well, maybe it was an add on that don't work with the new language??

If you look into the Reference Manager, you'll find it allows you to add as many drawings as you like, and do a find-replace on any of the selected paths. I use it all the time in 2004 for working with relative paths.

I have been a bit dense about this!!

xpath used to be accessessed within AutoCAD, therfore I assumed reference manager was as well.

However reference manager is a stand alone program which you access thro' the start menu!

This looks like the type of thing I need!

thanks for your help people!
