Specifying Search Paths and Filenames

When you start AutoCAD, it determines where certain files are that may be used during the drawing session. These items include support files and device drivers, which are located in various folders on your computer system. AutoCAD also determines where to store certain file information, like temporary and backup files. In the Files tab, you specify where to find all the files needed, and where to save temporary and backup files.

The Files tab is located in the Options dialog box, which is accessed from the Tools menu by choosing Options (see Figure 3.1). The Files tab identifies all necessary files and their locations in several folders. The folders are used to organize and display the information into a list of logical groups. As you select each folder in the list, a description is displayed in the description field under the list. The yellow folder icons in the list specify where AutoCAD searches for support, driver, menu, and other files. The white papers icons specify optional, user-defined settings such as which dictionary to use for checking spelling.
