Sharing custom textures


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. We have three designers in our office and on any given project there are at least two people will be working on a single drawing file. Here's our problem - when one person creates a custom texture, it does not show up when the other designer opens the plan. Instead it just shows as white. Has anybody discovered a way to solve this problem? Is there a way to embed the texture in the plan so it is linked to the file, not the person who created it?

You can save the plan file as a "Backup" and that includes all the texture files but you are better off to find a way to sync your library files in the long run as the Backup will include all the texture files and not just the new one you created for the plan.

If you have an intranet, you can set up a folder on your server to store common texture files (and pattern files, backgrounds, etc.); the caveat is that you must either: 1) use UNC file path names, or 2) everyone on your team must map the shared folder to the same drive letter. This is how we do things in my office, and it works for the most part.
