Register new images for parts.
Double-click the part for which you want to register a new image, and the following dialog box will appear. Click [Select Shape]. (For example, switch)
The [Shape Browser] dialog box will appear. Click [New Palette].
Depending on the shape of the part, clicking on [Select Shape] may open another dialog box called [Select State]. Choose the desired state and then click [Open] to open the [Shape Browser] dialog box.
The [Save As] dialog box will appear. Define the [Location (I)] and [File Name (N)] of the new part palette you and click [Save (S)].
When the following message appears, click [Yes (Y)].
The newly registered [Shape Browser] dialog box will appear. Click [Create].
The [Register Part] dialog box will appear. Select [State 0], and click [Select].
When the [Open File] dialog box appears, navigate to the image location [Look In], select the [File Name], and click [Open].
The image will be registered in the [Register Part] dialog box [State 0].
If necessary, set the part number and number of colors for the image to register in [Title] and [Color Settings], and click [Register], to complete the process.
The file name of original part being created is "*.bdx".
If you are using the version of GP-Pro EX V2.50 or later, original parts created in V2.50 or earlier are read only and cannot be edited.
For Switch/Lamp or Key Parts, if you have registered an image for every state (State 0: While turned OFF, State 1: while turned ON, etc.), you can switch between images.
If you specify multiple states to the registered images, ensure that the color is not set to transparent. Otherwise, the images are not displayed properly during a state change.
To select the registered image for the part, open the Parts dialog box and click [Select Shape]. In the [Shape Browser] dialog box, select the registered part image from [Select Shape]. Select the appropriate image and click [OK].
If you click [Create] while a previously registered part is selected, you can edit that part image. To create a new image, click [Create] while no previously registered part is selected.
Image parts can be registered with a maximum size of 160 x 160 pixels.
Parts which use registered images can cause large project file sizes. In the [Color] settings, select the [Compress] check box to manage the project size.
You can register up to 200 image parts in a single parts palette file.
You can register frequently used parts as a package.
8.10 Repeatedly Use Parts and Drawings (Package)
Image parts that have been enlarged or reduced may display differently on the display unit and in GP-Pro-EX.
When the registered image size is different depending on the state, the larger image will remain the same, and the smaller image will be enlarged.
You cannot register or delete a previously-prepared PDX file.
The types of image file that can be registered to a part are BMP, JPEG, DPD, and PNG.
