Creating a new shared mappings database
To create a new database file for storing shared mappings settings, use the following procedure. A settings database (file extension .db) allows you to store and re-use lists of catalogs, placement templates, ISM section creation templates, and family type creation templates. Note: You must have at least one shared settings database to perform any repository operation with the plug-in. If one has not been previously created or it has been deleted, you will be prompted to create a new database when an operation is initiated.
