open dwg without entry in recently opened files?
« on: December 28, 2023, 07:25:43 AM »
Hello,

it is possible to open, programly change and save a dwg-file without create a entry in "recently opened file" list?

In plugin i write some "map"-dwgs out from one working sourcefile, open the new mapfiles an change any thing, save this.
The "map"-dwg filenames "flood" my recently file list in AutoCAD.
This filenames i whish to not into list.

regards Mario

They do seem to appear
Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Autodesk\AutoCAD\R24.3\ACAD-7101:409\Recent File List
So perhaps you could delete the most recent ones.

I haven't verified, but I think that the MRU comes from dwgs opened in the Documents collection. I don't think that dwgs opened as a side database would be in the MRU. So try that if you don't need the dwg opened in the Editor context. It would be faster too.
