Symbol Library File Location

You can save the symbol library file, GTOL.SYM, in any searchable folder.

If you are administering a network with many users in distributed locations, you can place a single GTOL.SYM file in a location that all users can access.

Users then specify the location using the File Locations tab of the System Options dialog box.

To specify a new location for the symbol library file:

  1. Click Options Tool_Options_Standard.gif (Standard toolbar) or Tools > Options.
  2. On the System Options tab, click File Locations.
  3. Under Show folder for, select Symbol Library File.
  4. Select the current location of the symbol library file and click Delete.
  5. To specify the new location, click Add.
  6. In the Browse to dialog box, navigate to the location of GTOL.SYM and click OK.
If the GTOL.SYM file in the new location has different symbol definitions, they are applied to your drawings.
