Manual  Document types

This field offers the option of allowing additional documents to be opened in the relevant PARTsolutions module. You can set file formats such as *.pdf, *. doc or *.html or this purpose.

We shall use the WORD format *.doc in the example.

  1. Using the New button open the Add document type input window.

  2. Enter the required file format and confirm with OK.

→ The format is added to the Document types.

  1. Then open the Preferences for file type menu with the Edit button.

  2. Make the basic settings for this file type (see example in the illustration).

Large symbol or Small symbol: Directory path in which the respective symbol for this file type is stored.

You can search the system using the browse-button ....

Application (WIN) or Application (UNIX) : Define the application with which this file type should be opened. Use the Browse button for this.

[Note] Note

Do not forget %1 at the end of path declaration! (This is the placeholder for the file)

With English operation systems use double quotes in addition. ("%1")

DDE message, DDE applicationand DDE topic: DDE functions simplify working with files. For example, you can create a query with the settings in the image above, whether WORD is already open. Upon repeated opening of WORD files, just the one WORD application is recognized and used instead of opening a new one each time.

Copy symbol files to directory CADENAS/SETUP : If you activate this option, the symbols applied under PARTsolutions users will be generally available under Small symbol and/or Large symbol (e.g., administrator).
