Sheet Metal Styles- Import library?

206 Views, 1 Replies

I have custom material, appearance, and sheet metal libraries. I exported all my sheet metal styles. When I try to import them, I get this message:


   Error loading file 'file:///M:/00_Styles/SheetMetalStyles.styxml'.

     Cannot find reference to Colors style named 'Stainless - 2B' in file:///M:/00_Styles/SheetMetalStyles.styxml.

       Style 'Materials:smileyfrustrated:tainless Steel, 304 2B' has not been loaded from file:///M:/00_Styles/SheetMetalStyles.styxml.

The color and material it is looking for are both in the active style library.


Any ideas on fixing this?

Since this isn't an API specific issue I've asked the moderators to move this to the "Inventor General" group.  You're more likely to find someone else there who has had the same problem and hopefully found the solution.
