How to add new wire types to wire style list?

Multiple add


I would like very much to create a wire style that represents our 42 conductor cable (21 twisted pairs).  This would of course apply to our MANY other types of multi-conductor cable as well.  I can of course draw a single wire at a time, but if I were to do this for a 400 conductor wire (which we do have) then I'd be doing this for a very long time.


Solidworks Electrical apparently allows me to create a style with 6 conductors and no more using the default wire types.  If I try to add a 7th conductor it tells me "Cannot add wire style to "F50" of the numbering group "0".  All the possible types are already present."


So I would like to add another 100-200 types of wire per our internal standards for LV signals, PS signals, HV signals, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.  So I would like to add new wire types such as "LV+", "LV-" and so on.


How can I do this?


Thanks in advance.
