Many ArchiCAD users will agree, that it would be nice to fix the problem with missed libraries status when several people are using the same PLN file on Dropbox, Google Drive and similar cloud-storage services. Libraries are too big to have them embedded and it's really annoying to re-connect libraries every time when someone else been working with the file.

I propose to have additional window with folders location paths (for example up to 10 paths) similar way how it's done in Maxwell Render (see attached image). This way is possible to pre-set the file for use on different machines / operative systems. [/img]

you can agree with colleges to have all the libraries for example in C:/AC_Library
This is more like smthing that requires some coordination rather than a complicated solution.

Also BIM Server is free, use that instead of sending plns over dropbox. Get a free DNS and it works over the internet.
