Just curious of where one should place the working directory when working on multiple projects. Any lend me a hand on this. Hoping answer is right so that I might point and laugh at co-worker. Some one settle this intra-office debate.
So my working directory should be the same directory where I store my files correct? *this is the debate* Partner thinks we should put the working directory somewhere local on our HDD, and then save the .prt files in a separate shared folder on the server. Sorta makes sense. My position is to set the working directory to the same folder we are going to store the files in for this project. I want to keep different directories for each project as they will be for different companies. Which is better? or is there a better way?
I've found it best to set my working directory to where the project files are stored (in most cases). You can then create searchpaths in your config.pro to be able to read common files, such as standard fasteners, etc.
What I like to do is create a desktop shortcut for Pro/E for each project I am working on. The target always points to the Pro/E startup command, but the Start in folder is the project directory. This way, when you click on the shortcut, Pro/E automatically sets the working directory to your project.
