I created some custom symbols and added to Gtol.sym and It's been working well for the last few years up to SW2013; howver, it doesn't seem working with SW2014 - Is there any change I'm not aware of?
Ian, the new default location is no longer in the <install folder>/lang/english. The default location is now in C:\ProgramData\SolidWorks\SolidWorks XXXX\lang\english.
Have you checked the following:-
1: That 2014 has not overwritten your custom gtol.sym
2: That 2014 is pointing to your custom gtol.sym, not one it installed itself in a different location.
SW14 introduced the ability to create a custom location for the gtol.sym file.
Thank you Kelvin, Matt
I tried both locations and it works
I used to save my custom gtol in
C:\Program Files\SolidWorks Corp\SolidWorks\lang\english in the previout releases and am not aware the location already changed and SW2014 provides an option as Kelvin pointed out
Im trying to make a symbol like the image. Someone can help me with the gtol.sym programming?
You're almost there with your sketch in a 1x1 box
The code you need to create will be 2 lines and 3 arcs
use driven sketch dims from lower left corner to calculate the arc centers. Also do the start and end angles.
So it's not confusing I'd just do one at a time and Im sorry I can't remember where 0 degrees is you might have to experiment
I think you will need negative values for that first arc
It's probably overkill for a few lines but check out post 198 here
What are your most impressive tricks of solidworks, Please spread.
what part of the code to add a dot at the arrow's end?
For a solid dot? ...I've not used it but I guess you have to use two SARC's as in the code for the eye but maybe you could just use 1, but you'd think startAngle=0, endAngle=0 would cause a problem.
I wonder why the yCenters slighlty overlap?
Dear Rob Edwards, thank you so much by explanation.
Follow the code. (I'am so grateful)

I see I did indeed get the angle wrong, my sketch should have been like
