Question:How are user drawing styles, processes and BOM templates integrated in 'Quick Documents'?
In Advance Steel 2011 the creation of project documents is much easier with the new "Quick Documents" feature. The required steps will be described on how to integrate your own user drawing styles, processes and BOM templates in "Quick Documents".
1. Drawing Styles:
Open the "Drawing Style Manager".
Using the same procedure you can remove drawing styles, which you do not want to use, from "Quick Documents" by unselecting the drawing style name. Therefore you can adapt the functionality to your own requirements.
For Windows XP use the following folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\ Applicationdata\Graitec\ Advance Steel\2011\Shared\Support\QuickDocuments\Details
Open the "AstorAddIn" database by using the Table Editor in Management Tools. You can find the database in the folder (Windows7, Vista):
C:\ProgramData\Graitec\Advance Steel\2011\ User2\Data
For Windows XP you can find it in the folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Applicationdata\Graitec\ Advance Steel\2011\User2\Data
Open the "DetailMasterTable" table and find the desired drawing style. Enter the name of the picture file in the "ExamplePicture" column without its extension.
3. BOM Templates
Create a BOM with your modified BOM template. Save the BOM as rdf file in the following folder (Windows7, Vista):
For Windows XP use the folder:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Applicationdata\Graitec\ Advance Steel\2011\Shared\Support\QuickDocuments\BOM
After closing the rdf viewer, the BOM Editor is open again. Select your own BOM template, right click on it and choose "Properties".
Update Settings and all the adjustments you did are shown in "Quick Documents".
