CADD Manager Code Link!

I have used this program forever. And it is GREAT!

XRP – generate relative paths for XREFs – Xrp2004.lsp – created by Mark McDonough

From the author – “I wrote this for AutoCAD R14 (7 years ago) and I keep waiting for AutoCAD to fully embrace “Xref Relative Pathing”. But even with AutoCAD R2007, one still needs a utility to convert full XREF paths into relative paths. AutoCAD 2004 was the first release that allowed specifying a relative path when first attaching an XREF, it still does not allow automatic conversion of existing full XREF paths into relative paths. Nor is there any support for relative pathing for IMAGES. XRP makes the conversion of full XREF & IMAGE paths into relative paths easy. For AutoCAD R14 – R2006 (not yet tested in R2007, but feel free to give it a try). After loading the lisp file, the command name is XRP.”

  1. Hi,

    First I wanna say that I’m using your lisp for more than 3 years! It kept on working (Autocad 2007/2008/2009) until I installed Autocad 2010. So since yesterday I’m not able to use your wonderful lisp.

    You think you can help me out?

    Kind regards,

    Jimmy Bryssinck

  2. I’m in the same situation as Jimmy love the routine just doesn’t work in 2010. Fortunately i can just open 09 or 08 and use it. Thanks Chris
