publish to same pln path


hey All,

so im wondering if archicad has some sort of similar feature to autocad for publishing in the same folder/path as source DWG is at. 

eg. can i publish the pdf in the same file as the pln instead of browsing each time i want to publish. the reason i want to do that is because the master pln that i use will have different job number down the track, browsing the location later will become PITA once the jobs folder become packed with folders.

There is no 'relative' path when publishing unfortunately.

Many have wished for it.


You must set the path in the publishing settings, then no mater where you move/save the file, it will always publish to the same location.

So in your template (master pln), don't set the publishing path when you save the template.

That way you will at least be prompted to choose a correct file path if you have not already done so, and it won't just publish the the template folder.

thanks Barry,

it would be good to have that option. im currently publishing to desktop folder but this is making everything messy.

lets hope they put this option in the future updates.
