Favorites missing from dialog box


I'm not sure if this falls back to Acad of Fcad, but when a file selection dialog
box pops up the option of "favorites" is no longer there. Several people I work
with place the current project they are working on in their favorites. Without
the option of "favorites" they are forced to click through a lengthy directory structure
as they try to work. Is this an Fcad thing or should I direct this to the Acad
forums?

Re: Favorites missing from dialog box

This is an interesting request. I'm not sure if we've heard it from anyone
else, but it obviously makes sense. Each time Factory CAD prompts the user
for a file name using a file dialog, we have control over the dialog used to
display the file names, etc. I was looking through them to see if I got the
"Favorites" group and I didn't see it either. Hmmm... I'm not sure why it
is not displayed and honestly, never really looked into it. Could you
provide a list of commands you are using that you would really like the
"Favorites" group for? I need to investigate to see if it can be a change
at a global level, or if we will have to modify individual file dialogs.
That's why I would like the list of commands from you.

Re: Favorites missing from dialog box

Hello Mark,
What dialogs are your "Favorites" options missing in? Is it the File > Open,
or some other dialog box? Please list some examples of the dialog boxes
where the "Favorites" option is missing. After receiving a list of dialogs,
we will be able to determine if this is a FactoryCAD or AutoCAD problem.
Thanks,
Brenda

Re: Favorites missing from dialog box


Brenda & Jonathan,
I talked with the user who uses it the most & it appears to be Fcad specific.
Trying various dialog boxes to "insert" different types of files I found it to always
be present in Acad. (Limited testing on my part, just a quick check)
I myself don't use this option often enough as it does make it much quicker to get
to different points in our directory structure.
Back to what you were asking... There really isn't a "specific" point where we
see it needed, it's more that any time you would have a dialog box to find a file
we would like it to be there. (Not worded well...) How about if we need to get
a file from some sort of directory structure we request that it be in that dialog
box?
Regards,
-Mark-
