I want to create my own structural sections xml file but when I try to open it, the xml doen't appear in the structural sections list.Open the "StructuralShapesTemplate.xls" file, import the xml file, edit, an Angle or create a new section, export as a new xml file (i.e TEST.xml), save the xls file.In the Structural sections dialog box, open the TEST.xml file from data folder. BUT, when I want to select it from the list, it is not there.
In the StructuralShapesTemplates.xls file, make sure you have the two entries in the CODE worksheet (the first worksheet), "name" and "isMetric" filled in. The name field is what you will see in the Structural Sections dialog box. The isMetric field is either TRUE or FALSE.
