I am experimenting with modifying DetailingSymbolStyles.dgnlib to reflect what we use in our office. But it doesn't seem to work.
I have created a Default user and modified the file located at every place I can find.
No matter what I try, it always defaults to the delivered styles.
On the left is my modified Section symbol, and on the right is what happens when I create the section.
And this is what I see when I check on which cell is being used. The list shows all the cells 3 times.
Does this mean that it is showing the content of three files ? And if so, where are the extra files.
Is there something I am missing, and if so, what ?

Please follow the steps mentioned in the WIKI's and let us know if you face any difficulty.
I know how to edit and create new cells.
I want to know why I'm not seeing the changed cells but the default ones. Even when the default ones aren't in the DetailingSymbolStyles.dgnlib files. And why I'm seeing 3 copies of the cells in the list.
Raising a Service Request would be a good idea.
I thing I've narrowed down the problem.
When I select a cell to use, the list shows multiple copies of the cells, and the one used is the first one in the list.
The problem is that the file that contains the cells in the top of the list isn't any of the DetailingSymbolStyles.dgnlib files.
I have to now go on a treasure hunt to find the offending file.
I have removed all the "DetailingSymbolStyles.dgnlib" files out of my search path, and removed the Detail Symbol model spaces from "DrawingSeed_Architectural.dgnlib" So in theory I shouldn't be able to find any Detail Symbol cells.
But that isn't the case. Where do these come from ?
Some additional information.
When I remove "DetailingSymbolStyles.dgnlib" from \WorkSpace\BuildingDatasets\Dataset_ANZ\dgnlib and reboot my computer. for some reason AECOsim decides to reinstate the file at bootup.
Is this what should happen ?
