Projectwise switching Autocadd Reference files

How can we detach a reference file in a drawing and add a different one thru Projectwise without opening an autocad session ?

  • You can't. You can replace the existing projectwise reference with another file in projectwise, but you can't detach and then attach a new reference without opening AutoCAD (or MicroStation) to do it.

    To replace a reference file in Projectwise:

    • Right-click the existing reference in PW, select Properties
    • In the File section under the General tab is an Advanced button, click that
    • If the file you want to replace the existing reference with is outside of ProjectWise select Import
    • If the file you want to replace the existing reference with is inside of ProjectWise select Replace
    • Select the file to replace the existing file with
    • Tell it to use the Original Filename
    • Click the Save button
    • Click the Close button

    If you want to retain a copy of the existing reference first version before doing the above by by right-clicking the reference, select New > Version. After creating the version do the steps above on the master version of the reference.
