Relative Reference Paths Please

Got an idea to improve LayOut?

Relative Reference Paths Please

Postby TommyK » Tue Mar 17, 2015 11:12 am

I use Sketchup and Layout on a number of machines, as I am a mobile worker. I also like to have others work on the same documents as me. This is made very difficult by the fact that all references (models and images) in LayOut are stored as absolute paths. Every time I use a different computer (with project files shared on Dropbox), I have to relink each reference. It is a pain.

If LayOut uses relative paths, this would not be a problem. Couldn't LayOut simply be intelligent about this kind of thing? How about, if LayOut doesn't find a referenced file in the absolute path stored, then it looks for its relative path equivalent?

It is a small tweak which would make LayOut work better for the likes of me who like to get around and work with other people.
