user libraries/workgroup libraries

Recommended Posts

Hi All, 

I can't wrap my head around this feature in the libraries. I have found the directory for both user libraries and workgroup libraries. Even if I add a file in there, it doesn't show up. Could someone help me out?

Which version are you using? If in 2017 or 2018, have you run the Refresh Libraries command from the Resource Manager?

I have, i never really used it before. I added the directories in the preferences folders, but whenever i add files, nothing shows up. Even after refresh.

I'm running VW 2018

in your user folder, there is a Libraries folder with all the structure set up in it.  add your files there, then run the refresh from the gear in the RM. also make sure that the view is set active for the user libraries/work group libraries.
