Specifying configuration, graphics and other file locations with the Configuration Wizard


Opening Wizard

On the Build menu, click Project Wizard, or click the Buildplus wizardbutton.png button on the toolbar.

This opens the Project Wizard so that you can review, add or change which files are included in your project.

For a new project, the Wizard is only accessible after the project name and databases have been selected in the Database Specification dialog. Some selections may be made automatically based on Database types already chosen.

The Wizard only needs to be run once unless file selections need to be changed.

At any time, contextual help can be obtained by clicking on the ? box in the top right corner of the dialog box, and then clicking on the subject you are wondering about.

Note: as of DBDOC 10.7, it is possible to have pdf files built-in for display within the .M14 file. If your project previously included externally-linked pdf files, a PDF Documents Detected dialog may appear, allowing you to build-in any or all of your folders of pdf files. These selections can also be modified when rebuilding from Wizard.

Also, as of DBDOC 10.7, you may specify a location for .jpg, .jpeg, .png, or .gif images to be included in S+ or PGP graphics. If your project already included S+/PGP graphics, a S+/PGP Graphics Detected dialog may appear, allowing you to specify the location of these images. These selections can also be modified when rebuilding from Wizard.

Entering paths to files

Browsing to choose paths

Adding more than one path

Red arrow alert

When you see a red arrow there may be invalid path information, which must be corrected to proceed.

(If files are located on a remote machine you can't access, it may be necesary to copy them to your local computer. If you do, don't change the directory structure as it helps BuildPlus make some automatic associations.)

If the Wizard can't find your batch,ladder, AutoCAD and/or text files, it may be helpful to specify loop, PCU and module (LPM). DBDOC BuildPlus configurator uses the following steps to find LPM for these files:

For External .pdf and .tif files, it is helpful if the path you specify is either a UNC (\\computer\path\) or "System" mapped drive (S:\path\) so if a different computer is used for a rebuild, the files can be easily found. When you use Browse to find these files, the UNC path will be automatically entered.
