Position Schematic PropertyManager

The Position Schematic PropertyManager opens when you insert a schematic into a drawing document. You must have Microsoft® Office Visio® Professional 2003 installed on your system for this menu item to be available.

    The Position Schematic PropertyManager opens.

  2. Under Schematic Templates, select a template.

    NOTE: The PropertyManager lists the templates most commonly required in SolidWorks. To choose from the more extensive list in Visio, select Other from the bottom of the SolidWorks list, or else make no selection.
