Pathing issues on Mac Big Sur
I don't think this is a problem with BricsCAD, but rather a casualty of Apple's new hard drive folder format implemented on Big Sur (apparently as a sort of security measure), which I don't understand. Apple has restructured the way the hard drive is organized, creating a separate volume with a "Mac HD-Data" folder where, in my case, all my work is now located (upon upgrading to Big Sur it was automatically located here). I considered moving my folders back to the main HD but I got a warning that files copied directly to the HD won't be visible, so I left them on the new volume. The new structure creates pathing problems. For the most part, my xrefs are still showing up okay in drawings but all pdf and jpeg images in drawings are now missing their paths and I haven't had any luck repathing pdf overlays, so I've been reinserting images (time consuming). Also, drawings are no longer found in sheet lists for publishing, so I've had to recreate those for projects I want to publish since upgrading to Big Sur...frustrating. If anyone knows a better way around this issue, I'd love to hear it.
I've had other issues with xref paths dropping using the Publish command in V21, too, and posted in the Printing area of the forum in regards to that. I've had no problems using the Print command or publishing drawings that are open, but those drawings not open when initiating Publish do not include their xrefs...not sure if that's related to Big Sur or a quirk in V21 Publishing.
