Frequent tipster Leonid Nemirovsky sends us a tip and some code to help open AutoCAD's Design Center palette in a particular folder and avoid browsing to the drawing you're looking for.
The command ADCNavigate starts the Design Center and asks you to enter the preferred folder location. Furthermore, you can create a very simple macro (see code below) to have Design Center open exactly where you want it to. For example, if you have a drawing called MYBLOCKS.DWG with specific electric symbols blocks in:
The code will look like this (notice the extra "" in the code):
(command "adcnavigate" "P:MY_FOLDERMY_LOCATIONMYBLOCKS.DWG)")
Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol: Design Center is a very useful tool. It can help you import styles, blocks, linetypes, and more from one drawing into another. You can open it by pressing Ctrl+3, or by entering the command Len shares with us here. Note that in his tip, the code needs to have to slash marks (). That's because in LISP, the slash mark has a specific meaning; typing it in this way lets AutoCAD know that you are looking for a subfolder.
