Creating an Object Classification File
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

The object classification file contains information on object classes you have defined. You can create a new object classification file.

As a general rule, you want to use the same object classification file across all your drawings. This ensures that you have the same object class definitions for all source drawings attached to a drawing. You may want to attach the object classification file to the drawing template, and make sure that everyone has the same alias to the path.

If users in your organization share the object classification file, store it on the network in a place accessible to all users.

To use object classification, users attach the object classification file to their drawing. They can then create standard objects using the object class definitions.

Only the object classes defined in the object classification file attached to a drawing can be assigned to objects or used to create new objects.

Note To create a new object classification file, you must have Alter Object Class privileges.
