Adding Holder sub catagories

Creator
Creator

I want to add Holder sub catagories to my holder libary.  I got the sub catagories to show up but when I select the holder it does a metric conversion, and my holder is tiny.  

 

Any Ideas?

Attached is my file, currently commented out is the change I want.

Re: Adding Holder sub catagories

I would check this part of the code in the holder_ascii.tcl file? Since you're creating a new sub class it might be defaulting to mm rather than inch.

 

#
# Look for the desired libref
#
    if { $asc_file_loaded == 1 } \
    {
        ASC_array_search_libref $dbc_libref db_row 
    } \
    else \
    {
        ASC_file_search_libref $dbc_libref db_row
    }

    if {$db_row >= 0} \
    {
        set units [ASC_ask_att_val _unitt $db_row "" $asc_units(mm) flag]
        if { "$units" == "$asc_units(mm)" } \
            {
            set dbc_cutter_ass_units 0
        } \
            else \
            {
            set dbc_cutter_ass_units 1
        }

I had some old files, ones I updated to the new files in my customation folder, re-added the code, everything started working correctly.
