Edit a Sub Type

Dave Seabury

I created an element sub type that I now need to edit, and I can not for the
life of me figure out how to access the "sub types". Can anyone refresh my memory?

Thanks

It is just like any other object - you can open it by name so long as you can remember what is was called (and where).

Otherwise you can use the 'Select object by subtype' command.
It may not be in you menus if it has not been included in the Work Environment but you should find it in the GDL toolbar.

You will still need to know the name although it may be easier to spot if you don't and it will also show you all the objects using that sub-type.

Thanks Barry

It is not in my work environment which is why I couldn't find it.

Mystery solved.
