Create Reports and a Log File

You can export a report of the references in the drawing files that are currently added in Reference Manager. You can also maintain a log for saved reference path changes.

Create Reports

You can export a report of the reference data from all the columns (displayed or not) in one of three formats:

  • Extensible markup language (.xml)
  • Comma-separated values (.csv)
  • Microsoft Excel Workbook (.xls)

Record Changes to a Log File

A log file is maintained that automatically records every change to saved reference paths made with Reference Manager, even across several sessions. When a change in a saved reference path is applied, the change is appended to the log file, log.txt. By default, the log file is located in your My Documents folder.

The log file can be turned off in the Reference Manager Options dialog box.
