About Changing File Paths of Underlays

You can change the file path to a referenced DWF, DWFx, PDF, or DGN file or search
for an underlay when it is reported as not found.

When you open a drawing with an attached DWF, DWFx, PDF, or DGN file, the path of
the selected underlay is displayed in the External References palette under Found
At in the Detail list. The displayed path is the actual path where the source file
was found. The path where the source file was originally attached is displayed under
Saved Path.

To locate the file, the program searches the following paths and folders in the following
order:

  • Path specified when the underlay was attached
  • Folder containing the current drawing file
  • Project search paths defined on the Files tab in the Options dialog box and in the
    PROJECTNAME system variable
  • Support File Search paths specified on the Files tab of the Options dialog box
  • Start In folder specified in the program shortcut

If you open a drawing that contains a DWF, DWFx, PDF, or DGN file that is not in the
saved path location or in any of the defined search paths, the External References
palette displays Not Found in the Status column of the File References list, and the
Found At entry is blank in the Details list.
