.lcf files

Is there an advantage to putting all your frequently used library parts into a container as opposed to just in a folder? Does it load parts faster or save disk space or anything like that?

Thanks,
Rick

So how does one open an .lcf container library and then make a new .lcf file container?

Theses commands might have to be added to your Work Environment.

Ben:

You are correct, and they are in the "Layouting" and "Visualization" WEs as well. Guess I must have been thinking back to when these commands were added and did not show in older imported WEs.
