My current and scratch workspaces are not synchronizing to the default geodatabase. Initially I noticed that my workspaces kept defaulting to a random folder that I have on my local C drive. I have been able to set it back to the Default.gdb created by ArcGIS using ArcCatalog, as that is a better option than the random folder.
However, I would like the workspaces to synchronize with whatever geodatabase I set as the default in ArcMap (for example the geodatabase in my home folder). In the Esri help webpage for ArcMap, it says in numerous places:
The instructions for setting the default geodatabase are:
'Right-click the geodatabase to see its context menu and click Make Default Geodatabase.'
I follow these steps, but the workspaces do not synchronize to the default geodatabase that I have set. Furthermore, this is evident when I use any geoprocessing tools as it automatically puts the output in the workspace gdb not the default geodatabase I set.
I know I could just manually change the workspace environments every time, however, would rather not if I don't have to as this is time consuming for repetitive tasks.
Does anyone know what my issue might be?
