Cable Links Between Files

Recommended Posts


I have two schematic files I am trying to link, using the Cable link tool in ConnectCAD. I am working on a PC. Every time I save both files then reopen, or make any change to either of the two files the links break and I have to reconnect them. I have tried using the refresh links and rebuild links tool and nothing seems to work. Has  anyone experienced this?

Hello @HSTEW,


Unless you absolutely need to have stuff in more than one file, I would recommend that you keep everything in one file in the current version. If you need simultaneous multi-user access to the file then use Vectorworks Project Sharing. Project Sharing is already working reasonably well in ConnectCAD 2020 and is fully tested in ConnectCAD 2021.


Links between files will be officially deprecated as of 2021.


Hope that helps,
