    Local Symbol


      I lost the capability to create a new and edit an existing local symbol.  Is there something in the settings that can put back in the right direction?

          Which editor and which version? If xDX Designer in VX.1 then the commands are on the right mouse context menu as a sub-tree under Symbol - Edit Local Symbol. To create a new local symbol use the File - New  Local symbol from the menu pick.

          If this question is for xDX Designer then we will move the question after your reply.

            Yes it is.  I got to work after I rebooted the PC.  But it is stuck again.  The "Symbol Editor" appears but the part I need to edit.  Also the File>New>Local Symbol does not work too.

              The "Symbol Editor" appears but NOT the part I need to edit.  Typo

                What version of software and what flow?

                Any error messages when you try the 'New local symbol'? Can you edit a symbol from DxDataBook - CL View - Symbols - Local Symbols?

                If none of these work then you should contact your local customer support for assistance - it's not the kind of issue that is easily resolved via a forum.

                                  EE7.9.5  Flow?


                  No error messages on the output window although, this is what appears:

                  Cns file "C:\MentorGraphics\7.9.5EE\SDD_HOME\standard\ce_ee.cns" loaded (read-only).

                  Custom cns file "C:\WDIR\user.cns" loaded.

                  Custom cns file "U:\SPGEE_CACHE\NG_GND_WDIR\Scripts\user.cns" loaded (read-only).

                  Custom cns file "U:\SPGEE_CACHE\NG_GND_WDIR\user.cns" loaded (read-only).

                  Custom cns file "U:\SPGEE_CACHE\user.cns" loaded (read-only).


                  I can’t edit any symbol I created from DxDataBook too.  Is this a resource issue?
