When we place a component from the catalog into our drawings it defaults on the AB catalog, which is also the largest. Is there any way to change this default?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The choice of default vendor is set in the _LISTBOX_DEF table of the default_cat.mdb file. The program is delivered with some defaults just so it functions. The idea is for us to change as needed to suit our needs. See attached screen capture.
Note: This setting can be over-ruled by Block Name filtering, if a catalog record contains an entry in its WDBLKNAM field that pushes a select list of part numbers based upon the symbol block name. The WDBLKNAM entry does not need to include the first letter "H" or "V" in the symbol name. See attached screen capture.
If I want the LISTBOX on my SECONDARY CATALOG to show all the components and not start with a particular mfg or etc how should I do it? Again, just the seconadry catalog
