When I add a new sheet in my drawings, I found the GUI offer me 3 choice.
Now for Standard size the list is only for 1st choice drawing format. In my case I work in mm so I see only A0 A1 A2 A3 and A4. Is possible to add to this list also the 2nd and 3rd choiche format? or I'm forced to use the custom size option to set what I need every time?
|A3x3||420 x 841|
|A3x4||420 x 1189|
|A4x3||297 x 630|
|A4x4||297 x 841|
|A4x5||297 x 1051|
|A0x2||1189 x 1682|
|A0x3||1189 x 2523|
|A1x3||841 x 1783|
|A1x4||841 x 2378|
|A2x3||594 x 1261|
|A2x4||594 x 1682|
|A2x5||594 x 2102|
|A3x5||420 x 1486|
|A3x6||420 x 1783|
|A3x7||420 x 2080|
|A4x6||297 x 1261|
|A4x7||297 x 1471|
|A4x8||297 x 1682|
|A4x9||297 x 1892|
Be sure that I don't use all the format I have listed, but someone of them is really helpfull under specific circumstances.
To do better, I would like to add the format I use more often in the list proposed from the Use template option that at the moment list only the Siemens template. What the steps to manage this list adding my own template?
Im using NX10 (waiting for the "was of" Rob Cohon utilities)
Solved! Go to Solution.
The use of the Template option will allow you to create your owns set of templates, as many as you wish, and use those instead of the system provided set. The file that you need to either replace or modify is named 'ugs_sheet_templates.pax'. It's recommended that you not edit the existing file but rather create a new open and place it in the 'startup' folder in your 'user dir'.folder.
What if I already have the sheet inserted but its old?
In the template creation process I'm aiming to do even better and sometime I see sheet with old or not well positioned information. Need I to insert new sheet and move all the view from the old to the new one? The old template function had somenthing similiar to "retrieve pattern" to update information when needed.
The cell for Sheet Sizes definition had a "limited" imputs number
The max I can input is:
A4=210x297 A3=297x420 A2=420x594 A1=594x841 A0=841x1189 A3x3=420x841 A3x4=420x1189 A4x3=297x630 A4x4=297x841 A4x5=297x1051 A1x3=841x1783 A1x4=841x2378 A2x3=594x1261 A2x4=594x1682 A2x5=594x2102 A3x5=420x1486 A3x6=420x1783 A3x7=420x2080 A4x6=297x1261
Not bad, but strange thing is that still listed only the OOTB standard. All that I added seems not considered
Check to make sure that your session is actually using your latest edited Drafting standard.
While in Drafting, go to...
Menu -> Tools -> Drafting Standard...
,,,and make sure that the standard that you edited is the one that is loaded.
You can see in attachment the standard should not be the one OOTB.
Now I'm investigating on some variable.
Why can't we manage variable directly in customer defaults interface?
from log information
No user customizations read from UGII_PACKAGE_DIR - environment variable is not set

The questions are:
Failed to populate drafting standard data in level 1. What does it mean?
Failed to populate drafting standard data in level 3. What does it mean?
Why NX is processing 2 times drafting standard?
