How to turn on Custom Symbols


Seems to me way back in 7.5 I received some GTAC assistance to turn custom drafting symbols on.

I believe there are a bunch of OOTB symbol's stashed


I'm in 11.0.1 now, Does anyone know how to turn these on?

I think it is done in library management, but where are they stashed?


Thanks Paul S.

If you're referring to the legacy custom symbols that used to be available in the Drafting application, then you'll need to load these files into your Reuse library yourself. They are no longer available OOTB when NX is installed.


Here is a link to some information about the legacy custom symbol files, and how to load them back into your NX session:
