AutoCAD® drawings can reference several types of external files including other drawings, text fonts, images, and plot configurations. The paths to these referenced files are saved in each AutoCAD drawing. Sometimes you may need to move drawing files or the files that they reference to different folders or to different disk drives. The saved reference paths then need to be updated. To open each drawing file and then update each saved reference path manually can be a tedious process.
The Autodesk Reference Manager provides tools to list referenced files in selected drawings and to modify the saved reference paths without opening the drawing files in AutoCAD. With Reference Manager, drawings with unresolved references can be easily identified and fixed.
