Replace file references


You can replace a referenced file with another reference without changing existing edits to the reference.

To replace a file reference

  1. Do one of the following:
    • In the Outliner, -click the reference you want to replace, and select Reference > Replace from the menu that appears.
    • In the Reference Editor, select the referenced file you want to replace, and select Reference > Replace Reference.
  2. In the browse window that appears, locate the file you want to reference as a substitute and click Reference.

    The previous reference is replaced.

To view files that have been recently replaced, a reference in the Outliner or Reference Editor, and then select Reference > Recently Replaced Files. You can then quickly revert back to any previously replaced references by selecting the file.
