AutoCAD LT: Briefcase

By alanevs ·
When I drag a .dwg to Windows Briefcase, I can only open as read-only. My copies are then always in sync, but that kind of defeats the purpose.

Any thoughts?

AutoCAD LT: Briefcase

by sdfgsdf In reply to AutoCAD LT: Briefcase

that's because it loads them as a temp file. AutoCAD has a feature in it's later versions (LT and standard release 14 and later i beleive) called "pack and go". it should be part of your bonus tools (reffered to as express tools in AutoCAD 2000) which can be loaded by the command line. the command for pack and go is PACK. i'm not sure if this is the answer you are looking for, but it is a great tool for snychronizing files specific to AutoCAD. check it out.

That was a very thoughtful and thorough first answer. Why don't you go ahead and accept that answer and close the question.
