Newbie

browser favorite saved location?


I'm newish to WF (using 3.0 for about 6 months). I cannot locate where ProE is saving the new browser favorites I add from the set working dir dialog box. I have several with the same name, due to our company standards in file management from project ot project. I used to find them added to my config.pro, and would add the descriptive field to the entry to rename them with the project title.



I also have several old ones that don't work, but I can't find them in a config file to remove them.

Thanks in advance,

You can access them from the "Favorites" tab. Select "Organize", then
you can rename or delete them. (See picture)




Hope this helps,

The actual favourites file is stored in C:\Documents and
Settings\username\Application
Data\PTC\ProENGINEER\Wildfire\.wf\.Settings\web_favorites.xml

where username is your login

You can edit them there, but if you want to know where they are actually
going now, it's here:

C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application
Data\PTC\ProENGINEER\Wildfire\.wf\.Settings\web_favorites.xml

You can open an XML file in a text editor, but I'm not sure if WF will
'see' the changes. I had issues copying the web_favorites.xml file from
one PC to another. Just dropping the file in the right place didn't
work. Pro|E didn't seem to 'see' it there until I added a new favorite.

I'm not sure what we gained by PTC moving this information. When they
were in the config.pro, they traveled with my from PC to PC in the
office and I could add and remove global favorites for my users by
adding or removing them in the company config.pro. Now I can do
neither, but I got a pretty explorer-like interface for them in the
navigation area.

WF2 erases WF3 favorites

I have a favorites question: I just installed WF2 to open client files
and it cleared out my WF3 favorites! Is there a way to prevent this
from happening? Every time I open WF2, the favorites are erased.


Thanks,
Matt
