Saving in last dir opened from versus working


Saving in last dir opened from versus working

Proe users,

save_object_in_current no

Does this option set to no mean that files continue saving in the working
dir, even if a file is opened from another location? My set-up works fine
but another user is having issues with his parts saving to the server after
opening someone else's part from there.

Thank you

Here is some information on the MCAD forum from a similar topic:

. Working directory (MCAD forum):
21-Topaz II


Here's what the WF4 help says about that option:

Saves the object retrieved from a directory where you do not
have write permission. See the override_store_back option. The objects
to be saved are set by the save_objects configuration option.

no-Does not save the object.

yes-Saves the object in the current directory.

Looks like it has to do with write permissions and works in conjunction
with a couple of other options.

That said, I believe that PTC changed the default behavior of the
file-open dialog a couple of releases ago to behave more like other
Windows programs. By default, Pro|E will now default to the last
directory browsed to rather than the working directory every time. The
config option 'file_open_default_folder' controls that behavior. Set it
to 'working_directory' for the old behavior (check the help files for
other settings).
