Set start path for vi library manager

Hi

One thing that annoys me if I'm using LV, is the start-path of the vi library manager.

When I'm working on a vi, I'd like the vi library manager tha start with the directory path of this vi (or llb). But everytime I start it, I find myself in the LV-directory. This was ok if I just start LV and then open the library manager, but it's so annoying if I'm working on a project and want to change a llb. 😠

Is there any setting to change this or is this just in LV 7.0?

Hi bethko,
I think that you can set the search path in the Tools -> Options -> Paths menu.
Hope this help.

No problem about the nick-spelling ;).

It does not work if I have to set a static path. I want the library manager to open in the current directory if I'm working on a vi.

For example if I work on a vi which is located in C:\Project\LV\2005\Teststand1\testvi.vi, I want the library manager to open the path C:\Project\LV\2005\Teststand1. If I work on an other vi, I want the library manager to open the path of this other vi.
