Can I use variables in my ProjectWise Managed Workspace to define paths to the InRoads project data?
It is possible to specify ProjectWise environment variables within Project Defaults. For example, open a DGN file that has ProjectWise workspaces assigned. From the MicroStation menu, select Workspace> Configuration. Create a new variable that points to the desired ProjectWise working directory (or define a variable in a managed workspace). Notice in the screen shot below, the CT_PROJECTROOT points to a ProjectWise path that contains folders with the different project data files.
Now, within Project Defaults, enter the working directories for the different file types. The working directories should be in the format of $(Variable_Name)\Path\. Make sure there is a backslash in between the ProjectWise environment variable and the first folder name. Notice in the screen shot below, I have entered $(CT_PROJECTROOT)\Surfaces\ for the InRoads Surfaces file type.
Now, when different Applications are selected on the Open or Save As dialog, the folder structures should update according to what is selected in Project Defaults.
