i know this may sound like a stupid question but I've noticed that the company I'm working for at the moment has all their documentationpointing to 3D seed files...even schematics.i would have thought that a 2D seed file would be the best practise, for normal documentationi.e. (schematics , wiring diagrams , single lines etc) but what I'm essentially asking isis this likely to cause any significant issues ?
If so , is there an easy way to convert the documentation back to 2D , or is it a case of change itnow and future docs should be correct.i think we may have avoided any issues up to now, but it would be good to know what best practise isso i can suggest a change going forward if that is deemed to be correct practise.
Hi Jason, As a Best Practice it good to use 2D Seed files for creating Schematic, Wiring and Single line symbols. For the symbols that have been created using the 3D Seed file they can be modified again to use 2D Seed file. You can follow the below steps for the same .1. Open Manage >> Create Symbol. 2. click on "Modify Existing Symbol" and select the symbol that needs to b e modified with the Seed file >> select the 2D Seed File >> Check the option "Apply the Seed file when modifying the symbol" >> Next. 3. Click Next until the Step 8 to save the symbol and Finish. Hope this resolves the issue you are facing. RegardsSatish Saptasagar

many thanks satish,
that's great for the symbols i can adjust them, is there an easy way to convert the schematic documents themselves from 3D to 2D ?
does it involve some sort of conversion ?
Jason, There is no direct way to convert them, but the First thing to do would be correct the Seed file for the modes so that the issue does not occur again. Hope this helps!RegardsSatish Saptasagar
