For example I created a custom class called MyConnectors. I would like to have the Insert Connector button, default to that class rather than the old connectors class.

I have created some custom "user data" properties in a book. I would like to push these properties to older projects. I tried copy/paste new book to old project and tried using a project macro to add to old project. Both ways failed in passing the custom user data fields to the new books in the old project.

I'm trying to add a "line number" to a BOM report, but I'm having troubles. There doesn't seem to be a way to create a formula that goes 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. Am I missing something obvious?

We recently upgraded to SolidWorks Electrical 2018 and we seem to be having a small issue with our PLC symbols now. We had configured our automatically generated PLC symbols so that there was NO cross reference and the top and bottom but now the cross reference shows up (Picture below) and I can't remember how I got it to go away in the first place. I know that they can be hidden on a case by case basis but I would prefer they don't show up in the first place.

Solidworks Electrical weird routing results I have been testing Solidworks Electrical for a while now and made ~80% of first project - made most of the electrical schematics (2D). Because of setbacks with 3D Electrical which I explained in posthttps://forum.solidworks.com/thread/210094I couldn’t make any progress with 3D.

In my schematics, I often have a black wire running parallel with a white wire. Both of these look like black lines in Solidworks Electrical, so it's hard to tell which wire is black or white. Is there a good way to differentiate these two and still have the schematic be readable when printed?

Wire labels unavailable We recently purchased electrical schematic standard 2018 (sp2) after a trial using professional 2016 (unknown sp). After unarchiving the environment from the trial, I found the add/remove wire label option to be grayed out.

Problems with symbol insert/autotrim? So I have advanced enough at this point to be making my own symbols. In this case we have a motor contactor with add-on overload protection I am creating a symbol for.

Origin-destination arrows automatically generate coordinates for their counterparts on a drawing. For example, an arrow will have an attribute 02 - (5B) to show that it leads to page 2, column 5, row B. I would like to add these coordinates in the BOM report to locate components' associated symbols (e.g. show that part # 9034-00230 is at 02-(8H) and 03-(10P)).

Has anyone come up with a way to have more than just one 2D foot print for a component? What I'm currently working with is a panel layout, where on 1 page I want to show where the 4 panels I have are laid out together. Then on 4 later pages, I want to show the panel again with left/front/right/bottom displays. If it were possible to have one 2d foot print showing just the front view, and a 2nd foot print that showed left/front/right/bottom, that would be ideal.
