We would like for our DGN and Standards folders to be stored out side of the WorkSets root location by default. See image below.
WorkSetRoot folder always shows as under worksets even when I redefine it under my Workspace level.
_USTN_WORKSETROOT = H:/Civil/ds1/$(_USTN_WORKSETNAME)/_USTN_WORKSETDGNWS = $(_USTN_WORKSETROOT)$(_USTN_WORKSETNAME).DGNWS_USTN_WORKSETSTANDARDS = $(_USTN_WORKSETROOT)$(_USTN_WORKSETSTANDARDSDIRNAME)/_USTN_WORKSETDGNS = $(_USTN_WORKSETROOT)$(_USTN_WORKSETDGNSDIRNAME)/_USTN_OUT = $(_USTN_WORKSETROOT)$(_USTN_OUTDIRNAME)/
This doesn't work.
Anyone have a way to control the DGN, Out, and Standards folders independent of the worksetsroot folder?
You should be able to edit those variables to the appropriate location. In fact you may just need to edit the first one, depending on your sub directory structure. There may be others to edit.
Yes that works to edit the variables in the dialog. It's not quite what I desire. maybe a little more detail will help.
Our workset cfg files are stored in one location e.g. x:\CE_worksets\ Our project all fall under a different location and are devided by squad e.g. Y:\squad1\ and y:\squad2\ I would like for the dialog to show y:\ as its root folder and then the user will only need to select the squad they work in. It works to manually browse to the y:\ squad folder but it would be easier if we could start the user at y:\. Of course this is simplified and all but comes doewn to being able to easily control the root location for a workset other than the location the cfg files are stored _USTN_WORKSETsROOT or _USTN_WORKSETROOT.
Don't be afraid to question the status quo
I think we have hardcoded something here. I have tried defining my _USTN_WORKSETROOT location all the way down to msconfig.cfg (just for testing, this file should not be edited in production!) and the value displayed in the Create WorkSet dialog when 'Template : None' is selected ignores the configured _USTN_WORKSETROOT value, as you illustrated above.
I have filed "Defect 1005622: Create WorkSet dialog ignores any configured value of _USTN_WORKSETROOT when 'Template : None' option is selected".
Please file an SR referencing this defect if you would like to help it along and be advised of it's resolution.
Thanks, I submitted a service request on it.
