Exporting tool palette groups

You want to export tool palette groups in Building Systems 2007 as you were able to do in Building Systems 2006..

The ability to export tool palette groups to external XPG files is no longer available in Architectural Desktop 2007. Instead, you should use the Content Browser to share tool palette groups. Follow these steps:

  1. Create a new Catalog in the Content Browser.
  2. Create a new Category inside the new Catalog.
  3. Populate this new Category with the desired Tool Palettes.
  4. Publish the catalog to a shared location on your network.

If other users want to add these tool palettes and tool palette groups to their own tool palettes, they should follow these steps:

On a different workstation, add the shared network catalog that was created previously to the local Content Browser. Open the catalog, and drag the Category onto the local Tool Palettes. The Category will become a palette group, and the associated palettes will be retained.
