Re: efx_standard_drawing_list.txt

Hi Yaroslav Sinitsyn‌,

The file defines AFX library names that will have a standard drawing. If not defined in the list and a drawing exists in the library, this drawing will be copied.

Example:

A square_beam.prt and square_beam.drw are in the library. If the square_beam is defined in the efx_standard_drawing_list.txt AFX will create a NEW drawing as defined in the drawing_setup.txt in the library.

If NOT defined in the efx_standard_drawing_list.txt the square_beam.drw will be copied. This also means, that the drawing_setup.txt will have no effect!

greetings Sam

Re: efx_standard_drawing_list.txt

How will be work the option COPY_STANDARD_DRAWINGS_FROM_LIBRARY in conjunction with this file?

For example:

Expected: If NOT defined in the efx_standard_drawing_list.txt the square_beam.drw will be copied.

But the value of an option is NO

!Copy AFX standard drawing from library when assembling AFX component.

COPY_STANDARD_DRAWINGS_FROM_LIBRARY NO

In this case the drawing not will be copied and not will be created NEW?

Hi Yaroslav Sinitsyn‌,

I made a flowchart to show the behaviour. I hope that makes it clear
