Browser Library Not Showing Files

Post by FOUNDA » Wed May 22, 2019 8:51 am

Hello
I have pathed a browser folder (a personalised folder _CADlib) through application preferences. The files contained within do not show in the browser library. Also, if I create a block reference in the same folder. The block reference is created, can be viewed in Finder (MacOS), but the browser library still contains nothing. I have forced a 'update DB in file system', also restarted QCAD many times, still nothing there. What am i doing wrong? (or is this a bug?) Thank you, Andrew

Can you try "CADlib" instead of "_CADlib"?

Thank you for your kind feedback.

For your information: QCAD uses folders starting with a "_" internally for meta information. These are always hidden.
