: I was trying to use this to be able to access 'standard' parts, udf's,

: As I remember, you have to set the library directory that contains all
: of your library objects in config.pro
: something like: pro_library_dir c:\pro24\library (or similar)
: Then you have to run a commandline script that 'indexes' the library
: directory parts, UDF's, etc... and creates the *.mnu files (as I remember)
: You can then edit the menu manager to show these menu items on an
: additional menu.
: Also, when you try to insert a part, UDF, etc... the pro-e file
: selection box will have a 'folder' that looks like a stack of books that
: will take you the the 'library' directory and lets you select any parts
: that were indexed.
: Secondly, in the *.mnu files, you can add a single line description that
: will showup in the file menu next to the part name.
: I haven't tried this in a while because (as I recall), when things are
: added to the library, the commandline script must be run again, and the
: *.mnu file MUST be re-annotated with all of the part descriptions AGAIN.
: I can't seem to find this in the Wildfire help now, can anyone else shed
: some light...
: ...and I am still looking for something similar to the Solidworks
