Macro transfer

Recommended Posts

I have been using X9 for a while but just started to do some final Con. Docs.  I went to use some of my custom macros from Joe and realized they didn't transfer over from X8.  Is there a simple procedure to do this?

Sherry I had the same problem and I just went into my folder in x8 opened my default plan, opened text macro management from there selected the marco's I wanted hit export and exported them to a folder where I knew they were, went to x9 opened text macro management and just imported them into my default plan.

Thank you Ray.  Does that mean I have to import them into all the files I have currently been working on too?

Sherry,

 

You can simply copy the contents of the X8 Scripts folder to the X9 Scripts folder.

In addition, make sure the Ruby Load Path in Preferences is set to your X9 Scripts Folder.

 

Existing Plans brought forward from X8 will have the macros already in them.

I'll give that a try Joe, thank you.  These were new design drawings, all started in X9.  I hadn't  looked at any I brought forward from X8.  Obviously my macro skills are nonexistent and will probably stay that way!  Much too busy with projects.....

i did it Rays way for this current job and it worked but a bit time consuming.

Sherry,

If you put all that stuff in your Default Plan Template the new projects will have it as well.  You only need to keep the Template up to date.

Yes, I had started off with a new template in X9 and didn't realize the macros weren't there.  I will now be using my modified SAM method based on this template but need to get all these little things right.
