I have created a new weldment profile and it doesn't show in the size drop down. It was created from an existing weldment profile in the same location. The previous file shows, but the new one does not. See attachment for profile file.
You need to put it in a folder under the "gr shapes" folder.

I have a similar problem but the profiles I need are in the correct folder and as far as I can tell SW is looking in the correct location. I used other profiles in the same location but the profiles for the Al Tube (square) don't show in in the drop down. Any suggestions?

Thanks Deepak. I'm not sure why I could see some of the profiles but not others. I moved all the profiles under the ISO file and now I can see what all of the profile sizes.
I see you're pointing to two locations at Tools > Options > File Locations > weldment profiles. I'm not sure but that might be causing some of your problems.
The reason could be configured profiles. I mean if you've configured profiles then you don't need a additional folder. You need the additional folder only for non-configured profiles.
