I am currently trying to set my actuators in my catalog. Now I don't want to use the default actuators provided (as seen in attached image "Acuator list"), I would like to rather use ones that I have created, but when i try create an actuator, using the create new components option under catalog editor, after specifying my information (as seen in image "Actuator I would like to add"), the actuator does not appear in my list of components in my catalog like the other actuators do. Can anyone please help?
I can't reproduce this issue.
Could you provide detailed steps of the workflow that you are using?

I have also samekind problem.
When I have filled all information of the actuator in Create New Componen-section and pushed Create-button, the actuator doesn't appear anywhere?

My workflow is exactly that of which I would use to create any other component. In the Spec Editor I open my catalog and select "Create New Component", I then select "Actuators" under component category, and choose "ValveActuator" under piping component, then give a short description, choose metric sizes and fill in Manual for operator type and Hand Wheel under Actuator type. I then select the Handwheel image and say Create and nothing happens.
I know what the problem is. If you change the Actuator from Imperial to Metric it doesnt work. Unfortunately I do not have a solution though.
Not sure if anyone else has figured this out?
