Adding Hoffman Enclosure drawings to the database

I'm trying to add an enclosure to my drawing and it is not one of the Hoffman enclosures listed in the database. I can find a similar drawing on Hoffman's web page but I don't know how to add it to the database I have. Any suggestions?

Start with the Panel tab in ACE first. 

You can use the symbol builder to create this new Hoffman panel with the intelligent attributes added.

Then you can use the Footprint database File editor to add this new panel record into your Hoffman table.

For some reason, a lot of the normal wall mount Hoffman enclosures are listed as a sloped front.

I used Hoffmans exclusivly, and usually know my part number, so I just filter the list to sort by number---so far everything I use has been there; just wrong descriptions
