Is it possible to change the directory of workspace module and have that change apply to existing objects?

This question is answered

This is related to the question I asked about having more than file with the same name a couple of weeks ago.  We were able to add a new module for our second set of image files with no problems, and the new module and new objects are exactly where we wanted them to be now.  

We now realize that our original files are actually in a less than ideal place in the propath with the new setup, and we would like to change our original "Images" module such that all of its objects are in a different directory.

I was able to change the Directory in the Admin -> Workspace Modules Definition window and save that OK, but I don't see any actual change in the directory used if I check out or check in existing files from that module. Is there another step I need to take to affect the existing objects in that module?

Thanks,

  • When you change the Module Definition directory, Roundtable does not move the physical files.

    So, to complete the process you will need to:

    1. Move the files to the new folder

    2. Run the 'Build Names Table' program from the 'Admin' menu.
