Yes, if the Dropbox folder is not under the User's Profile folder then others will probably be able to see it.
On each computer, in Windows Explorer, select "This PC" in the list, then use the "Computer>Map Network Drive" command on the Ribbon.
Map a drive letter (such as drive "Z:") to the Dropbox folder (e.g.o "Z:" and it will always publish into the Dropbox folder of the current User.
Let me know if this works.
That is our current solution. The downsides are, that you need a Dropbox PC with all the files, that is sharing them. This solution has some problems.
- You need an extra PC
- This PC needs to be Windows Server if you wanna share with more than 25 users (Win Pro restriction)
- Dropbox is not made for 24/7 and will crash once a week. You need to restart the service
- You are unable to track who did what, because Dropbox will see all changes from the user you assigned to that PC
So again, a complicated solution (extra PC) to a simple problem (environment variables).
I will have a look into environment variables. Maybe I can trick ArchiCad into it. Like Archicad sees C:\User\Testfolder but in reality this folder is C:\%username%\Testfolder
