Create Slide

The Create Slide command is used to create a slide using an area of your drawing. A slide is an image file that is displayed in dialog boxes to represent the block that is selected.

The slide file must have the same name as the block that it represents. If a block is selected that does not have a corresponding slide, an "X" will be shown in the dialog box instead. The block will still insert properly if a corresponding slide does not exist.

To create a slide, go to

Ribbon: DMP: Customization->Block Creation->Create Slide

Pulldown Menu: DM Plumbing->Customization->Block Creation->Create Slide

Save Slide As Dialog Box


Specify the name of the slide file to create, then press the Save button to create the slide.

The screen will flash while the slide is being created.
