Settings: File Locations For Holes & Callouts

[ Edited ]

Can someone tell me where the files are located that store saved settings for custom holes in models and callouts in drafts?  I want to make sure I move them to my admin folder.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

 

"Saved custom holes" is here: c:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST8\Preferences\Custom.XML

Holes are here: c:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST8\Preferences\Holes

Callouts is here: c:\Program Files\Solid Edge ST8\Template\Reports\DraftCallout.txt

 

BR,

Re: Settings: File Locations For Holes & Callouts

Might want to note the following (or not):

 

Custom hole settings, view scales, etc. are saved in ...\preferences\custom.xml
Custom BOM styles are saved in ...templates\reports\draftlist.txt
Custom weld symbols are in ...\templates\reports\draftweld.txt
Surface texture and feature controls don't seem savable for some reason even though they each have a save settings feature in their dialogs just like the other callouts.
Materials are in ...\preferences\material.mtl.

Thanks.

Re: Settings: File Locations For Holes & Callouts

But I dont see a setting in "File Locations for all of these.  So how can I get other users to be able to use the same callouts and stuff that I have set up on my computer?

right they don't have a global file for callouts. we created them and copied to each machine

Re: Settings: File Locations For Holes & Callouts

That is kind of silly. Looks like you could direct all computers to a shared file like the rest of the stuff

Put the callouts file "draftcallout.txt" on a server. Also any other of these "collectors" can be put on the server and referenced there as well.
