Opening Files....

Recommended Posts

When using Crtl+O or File>Open to open a file within VW, the default folder is never the same. For instance, if I've opened and am working on ABC.mcd in folder 'X' and I want to open 123.mcd in the same folder, VW frequently defaults to a random folder to open a file from. Is there a way to set a default foler for opening VW files?

Under Windows XP you should be getting this behavior. Every time you open the program, VectorWorks should default to your default OS wide open/save location.

Once you are within a session of the program, VectorWorks will remember the last folder you were working in, but if you quit and reopen VectorWorks that will get set back to the default.
