Just today when i clicked on folder in the "symbol browser" i can not acces my folders with symbols. I can only acces the maps on the dekstop. Also in Program Preferences i can not set the pathnames to other maps than the maps om my desktop. very strange!
I deleted and installed Datacad 21 completely but it doesn't change anything.
Any suggestions?
Many thangs, John.

If you have recently updated Windows 11 then I suggest you read the forum discussion at in the DataCAD 22 thread as your symptoms appear the same as those discussed there (and Mark Madura offers a workaround in his latest post to this thread).

As a caveat, make SURE you follow the instructions and copy the OneDrive sync'd files/shortcuts/etc. BEFORE you stop the backup sync. You'll then need to re-populate your desktop, but it does give you control back of the folders.

Thank you for your reply/ suggestions,
I'am running Datacad om windows 11 version 22H2 and seem to have the same issues as in the thread above mentioned.
I will look into it further and try to resolve the issue.
