2010 symbol libraries

Recommended Posts

hey all... still real new to VW, and we just upgraded a few seats to 2010... just wondering if there is some sort of batch re-save for all of our symbol libraries or is it the norm to open up every single one and re-save it so it will open in the resource browser...

just wondering

File/Batch Convert? first.

After that, the Resource Browser favourites may well need to be re-established, unless you successfully copy the old Preference file to the new location.

Sorry: I have no idea what that location might be in Windows. Nor do I know whether the copy operation can be successful. Worth a try?


What nonsense! The new libraries must be in a new location, otherwise the old VW version loses the links.

Preferences are kept in an XML-file, which is plain text. Search & replace the folder path!

what Kool Aid says, use the Batch Convert command from the file menu. You can convert the files in place, or you can set set up a new VW2010 folder for the new files and have them automatically added to the new folder.

you will have to add the files to the Resource Browser.
