Why are my files not available when checked out?

Nov 25, 2013 1:58 PM

I have a relatively new Win 7 box, running TCS 4. So in Frame 11, I have checked out a book (using CMS/SharePoint) and everything checks out ok. But when I go to edit the files, they all have question marks and if I try to open them, the message is " does not exist." for example.


Also, a long file directory is showing instead of just the file name.


Other users with similar setups are not having this problem.


I can work with other books just fine, but not this one (which is the MAIN one I use FM for!).

    You should be able to toggle that with the book open in tab format – there’s a little toggle icon on the book tab that goes back and forth from name to file name.

    FM uses the relative path from the book location for the filename displays in the book. If the book and files are all in the same location, then the FM will just display the filename. I'm not certain how it's handling things if you're checking things out of a repository, but it should have everything in the same folder, so relative naming should be expected.

    Sorry, I was thinking it affected the book title/path/filename too
