Gathering reference files

Recommended Posts

Is there an easy way to gather all referenced files (DWGs, images, PDFs, etc.) from a VW project into one folder?


I'm pulling together some files to send to a vendor and we've made extensive use of referenced files that are spread out across our network drive. Just wondering if there is something similar to InDesign's "publish" feature that automatically packages all the relevant files in one folder instead of having to manually locate them all.

@tsw  There is probably a better way to do it, but this might work for your need.  


If you attempt to delete the reference file in the navigation palette, there is a pop up that prompts you to decide what will happen to the referenced contents.  One of the options is import into the current document.  This may result in a very large file, but you won't have to track down reference files 😉
