AutoCAD Map 3D creates a
drive alias for drive C. You must create drive aliases for all other
drives that you use.
Drive aliases are useful
as typing shortcuts or as a reminder of what drawings are contained
in the directory. In addition, they make it easy for multiple users
to share drawings.
The alias you assign
appears in the Drive list whenever you select
To modify an existing
drive alias, select it in the list, enter a new Actual
Path, and click Update.
To create a new drive
alias, enter a new Drive Alias, enter an Actual
Path, and click Add.
- Drive List
View aliases you created.
- Drive Alias box
Enter the alias to use.
The name must be unique,
use only alphanumeric characters (including hyphen and underscore),
contain no spaces or colons, and start with a character.
- Actual Path box
Enter the path, including
drive or server name and directories.
If you are not sure of
the drive or directory, click Browse.
Xrefs and raster objects
use their assigned paths and are not affected by drive aliases.
