When I right click on a symbol in the symbol browser i have the option "Open this symbol's folder in Windows Explorer"
I have my symbols (Insert Symbol, Classic Templates, Classic Symbols, Symbols Base Path) in Program Preferences pathed to F:\datacad\symbols

It opens in to My Documents which is in F:\Users (not on C:\ as is usual).

Any thoughts on how to fix this?

Regards

Is your Symbol Browser set to a Folder or are you looking at a Template?

The correct path is shown F:\DATACAD\Symbols\L4 ACCESS, BARRIER & CIRCULATION\L41 DOORS, WINDOWS, ETC (ACCESS PRODUCTS)\L413 Windows

John,

I believe it's the COMMA [,] in the folder names that is causing the issue.

I renamed one of my folders adding comma, parenthesis, and ampersand, all present in your path names, and using a COMMA prevented the Symbol Browser right-click 'Open this symbol's folder...' function from working.

I'll report this in the beta group.

The fix will likely only be for V22 - not V21.
