Add new document type

I have added a new document type in the Type and Attribute Manager, but when I go to add a new document to Windchill, I do not get my new type in the drop down menu.

I am guessing the menu is built from a RBinfo file that I need to locate, edit for the new type and compile. I will look on Monday, but in the mean time, I am looking for confirmation that that is where I need to look for this last step in the modifications.

Windchill 10.0 m040

Re: Add new document type

You don't need to update RBInfo for this. Please verify whether  "Instantiable" is set to yes for the new subtype. Secondly verify whether OIR exists for the subtype. If the softtype or parent type does not a valid OIR, the validator removes the type from new document window

Re: Add new document type

The OIR is set for all documents.

Once I set 'Instantiable' to Yes, the item showed up in the New Document type list.

Thank you.

Re: Add new document type

Just to clarify:  are you referring to a new soft type of WTDocument?  Or are you modeling a new "base" type?
