Favorite Files maintain symbol folder hierarchy

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

When pulling symbols in from a "Favorites" file, is it possible to have the current document maintain the symbol folder hierarchy from the "Favorites" file?

I currently have about 600 symbols in my template file - lighting symbols, parts of Multi-Circuit symbols, Section symbols - a bunch of stuff that really means, I have a close-to-50mb file before I draw anything specific. I'm looking at making those symbols a favorites file, instead of having ALL of them in the template. however, in order for me to be able to do that with any sanity, I need the symbols to maintain the organization of the Favorites file. Otherwise the resource browser is just a jumbled mess, and would A) slow me down because I can't find anything and B) rally mess with my OCD. When I import a symbol from a NON-favorites file, I'm given the choice to keep the folder hierarchy, so is there a way to do this with Favorites files?

yes, exactly. It only asks about folder heirarchy if I actually import, as opposed to just inserting a symbol. I'm so used to it all being in one file, so the idea of having to import stuff first will throw me for a bit. It'd be great for the folder hierarchy to assert even if I just double-click, but I guess I'll just have to get used to it.
