Is there a way to mass edit the path of recipe files? Or for that matter mass edit anything in OPTO 22? I recently was “volunteered” to inherit an OPTO 22 from a retiring colleague. I performed an upgrade from OPTO 10.4a to OPTO10.4c. I need to edit the path to my recipe files but I can’t find a way to select them in mass to change the path. Also if I copy the correct relative path (i.e. …\recipes) and paste it I can’t change it to relative without it erroring out. If I enter the correct absolute path and then click the use relative path checkmark the relative path defaults back to the previous incorrect path. So I’m having to paste the correct path then hit OK. Then reopen the same recipe file and check the relative box. Is there a less tedious way to do this? Why can’t i select all my recipe files and change the path? Or why can’t i just delete all the current ones and add back the correct one in bulk? Are there CLI options to do this?
FYI This is my first post to OPTO. I recently was “volunteered” to take over our site OPTO system in addition to managing our plant DCS system. Primarily my experience is with Siemens PCS7 so OPTO is pretty new to me.
I know what the relative path means what I’m saying is when I want to change it it won’t accept my edits until I hit OK.
So for example I open a recipe file and the path is C:<old_project dir>\recipes<recipe>.
I just want to make it relative by pasting in the new C:<new project dir>\recipes<recipe>. Then I check on make path relative, the path changes to the old path. …<old project dir>\recipes instead of just …\recipes. I have to paste the new path in then hit ok. Then I have to reopen the configuration then click the make relative box and then it works.
Also why is the browser window different for the recipes configuration than it is for the sounds configuration? I can’t just type a path when I click the browse option like i can on other configuration windows.
