How do I transfer devices between Cable libraries?

You have been e-mailed a library file (Cable.lib) containing a new cable device that does not currently exist in the library file (PTW.lib) on your computer.  The new device is a 600V copper cable.  It was created in the Standard Cable\Copper\LV library category.

Step 1 – Copy this file to the (C:)\PTW32\Lib folder on your hard drive.

Step 2 – Start PTW

Step 3 – Open the existing PTW.lib file by selecting the Document pull-down menu.  Select theLibrary menu item.

 
     
   
     
 

Step 4 - In the "Select Document Type" dialog, select "PTW Library" and click on the “OK” button.

 
     
   
     
 

Step 5 - On the next window, select the PTW.LIB file and click on the “Open” button.

 
     
   
     
 

Step 6 – The new device exists in the Standard Cable\Copper\LV category of the library.  Expand the Standard Cable library category by clicking on the "+" symbol.  Expand Coppercategory by clicking on the “+” symbol.  Select LV library category. 

 
     
   
     
 

Step 7 – Open the Cable.lib file containing the new cable by selecting the Document pull-down menu.  Select the Library menu item.

 
     
   
     
 

Step 8 - In the "Select Document Type" dialog, select "PTW Library" and click on the “OK” button. 

 
     
   
     
 

Step 9 - On the next window, select the Cable.lib file and click on the “Open” button.

 
     
   
     
 

Step 10 – Cascade the windows by selecting the Window pull-down menu.  Select the Cascademenu item.

 
     
   
     
 

Step 11 – The new device exists in the Standard Cable\Copper\LV category of the library.  Expand the Standard Cable library category by clicking on the "+" symbol.  Expand Coppercategory by clicking on the “+” symbol.  Select LV library category. 

 
     
   
     
 

Step 12 – Select the new device by clicking on it once so that it is highlighted.

 
     
   
     
 

Step 13 - Select the Device pull-down menu again.  Click on the Copy menu item.

 
     
   
     
 

Step 14 - Bring the existing PTW.lib file back into focus, and expand the Standard Cable\Copper\LV library category.

 
     
   
     
 

Step 15 - Select the Device pull-down menu again.  Click on the Paste menu item.

 
     
   
     
 

The new device(s) now resides in your existing library.  Initially, it will be added to the end of the list, but it will be sorted alphabetically next time the library is opened or until you switch between different library categories.

 
     
   
     
 

Notes: If the cable devices you are pasting into the destination library already exist, the following dialog will appear. Select the appropriate option and click on the “OK” button.
