To correct the path name for a missing map:

You must first locate the missing bitmap or photometric files. The Windows Search program can help you with this.

  1. On the Bitmap / Photometric Path Editor dialog, click Select Missing Files.
  2. Click to select a single missing file in the list.

    If a group of missing files are in the same directory, you can leave all of them selected.

  3. Click Strip Selected Paths.
  4. Click Set Path.
  5. Enter the correct path in the New Path field, or click the "..." button to browse to the correct path in a Windows file dialog.

    The Bitmap/Photometric Path Editor updates the selected maps' path to use the new path.
