Publish by relative path

Not applicable
Maybe the subject to this wish should be something like "Ability To Set Root Directory" but i thought "Publish to relative path" was a more user friendly subject.

What i would like to do is to set the directory folder of the projects .pln as a root directory. So that i can direct my publish path relative to this root directive. This would also be able for other links, such as hotlinks, drawings, Xrefs etc.

With this feature one can move, or rename, a project map without the need to redirect the publish path or loosing other links/paths.

Does anybody els think this would be a good feature, or am i not thinking this through?

Hey Hugo this definitely makes sense. Such a simple command that would make a huge difference in workflow. Would love to hear if there are any updates on this from Graphisoft's side.

I agree, this along with more options for relative paths for hotlinks and libraries would be a very nice feature.

Exactly what prompted me to see if this was implemented yet or not!

This would keep me from cursing at co-workers who like to rename project folders too!

Yes, agreed. And everything should be possible to be relatively linked.


Working with cloud services with automatic sync would be like heaven if we had relative paths in use. No matter you were at home, on the road, at hotel or at the office. Everything would be seemlesly the same for you. And better yet, for everybody in the office. No need to hassle anymore with showing your libraries locations, and relinking publishing paths.


I work at home, at the office and on the road too. Every now and then there is a need to open somebody elses project. Now I need to show Archicad the libraries by hand and so on, not productive.


So please, it's a strong wish!

+1 It gets a bit annoying after reusing a previous project to find all my published files in the old project folders as the path hasn't been updated.
