We use AutoCad in the office and it is always an issue when working on a project where the file uses links and more than one person has to work on it. If person A opens a file (ex: Planting Plan.dwg) with links, they are linked through that person's computer user name since we each hold Dropbox files on our drive. For example: cad file has a link to civil base file (/Users/A/Dropbox/Current projects/Hotel/CIVIL_BASE.dwg). If person B wants to open the same file (Planting Plan.dwg) after person A closes the file then the link will be broken to the civil base because the they are user B and now user B has to re-link the file so that it is: /Users/B/Dropbox/Current projects/Hotel/CIVIL_BASE.dwg. Is there a work around this issue? Does anyone using Dropbox as a server have a work around?
