Genius! You are always on the ball. Thanks so much @DanRathbun
You’re right… I need to get into the event-driven frame of mind. So far, I have only written click and wait stuff. I forget that there is a robust observer to explore.
@glennmstanton out of curiosity? what field? I’m architecture.
The files I update\maintain are components in a library I have been developing for years. We use them daily on our projects.
I started using FlexTools Component Finder recently and it lets me “Overwrite with Selected” to the library as I work. I improve the library the minute I discover a component bug or make an improvement. It’s awesome!
It gave me the idea to extend it to other parts of our library, heck our templates, layers, naming conventions. Ideally I you could select something like a layer and say “rename globally” and everything in the library would be broadcast the updates. It’s sort of like a push version of Component Finder.
That sounded too ambitious but I WOULD settle for updating files as the are opened, hence the question herein.
Long story short… too late.
Anyway, I’ll give this a go between Formula one and drafting. Thanks.
