Preference - Paths - change

melodyLmelodyL Posts: 5
We are having issues with PDS - Preferences - Paths change as you are working.  You think you are in your own storage area, save, go to accumark to plot and the piece are not in the storage area you thought. you go back to PDS and you check your Preferences and the Path has changed.  What is causing this.

    Hello Melody:

    In Pattern Design, you will need to go to Edit|Customize Workspace|Preferences.  In the General Tab, you will see the option "Data Stored To." 

    Be sure you select drop down option: Retrieved Area.  This will ensure the data is stored back to the storage area from which it was retrieved as opposed to the default storage area. 

    Hope this is clear and helps.

    We have done everything above except we do not use retrieve, it will change on its on and you don't even realize it did it until the next time you use them or plot them...  We all have our default storage area our own working storage area..Never the retrieved storage area you don't want to overwrite production pattern pieces.
