Tipster Edward Owen sends us a tip for accessing project folders more easily.
"In our office, we work with many projects at once for short periods of time. The path to get to these DWGs is sometimes lengthy, as they are all on a network. So, to help us get back to these folders quickly, we use the Tools > Add Current Folder to Places option in the Open and Save dialog boxes. This is so simple, yet quite handy. Once the project is complete, simply right-click and remove the folder. These folders can also be dragged up or down depending on your preferences."
Notes from Cadalyst Tip Patrol: This is a good trick. You can also add the folders in question to your Favorites. Also, in AutoCAD, where your most recent files are listed in the Application menu, is the Pin option. Click the Pin icon to lock a file listing in place. This keeps that file in your list of recent files. You can also pin sheet sets, giving you constant access to every drawing in the sheet set.
