How to Add Custom Frames in Drawing file?

Hi,

 

Can anybody help me out for adding custom frames in CED Annotation file?

I tried the method suggested by PTC Tech Support but did not work in my case.

I tried below method of changing the am_customize file as below

 

;(docu-register-frame
;    :UI-name "Custom-A3"
;    :Wm-name ""
;    :file "C:\Custom_Frames\Custom_A3.mi"
;    :default :every time)     ;; T/NIL/:every time

 

 

But this did not work.

Still the same standard Letter sizes and A0.....A4 sizes are showing.

 

Please help....

;(docu-register-frame
; :UI-name "Custom-A3"
; :Wm-name ""
; :file "C:\Custom_Frames\Custom_A3.mi"
; :default :every time) ;; T/NIL/:every time

Right syntax solved the issue aa below.

docu-register-frame
:UI-name "Custom-A3"
:Wm-name ""
:file "C:/Custom_Frames/Custom_A3.mi"
:default :every time) ;; T/NIL/:every time
"
We have to copy the above syntax for all the frames to configure in am_customize file.

Did the frame show up in the drop down list when starting a new drawing?

 

When you said this did not work, what results did you get?

 

How did you create the frame?  Did you save it as a frame?

Yes it is comments

Hi.

I do not know it well, but...

Is the character ' ; ' at the head of every sentence unnecessary?

It means comment.

 

Sorry, I noticed that this question was solved now.
