Using solidworks electrical for pneumatics

Greetings, everyone.


I am currently working on getting solidworks electrical setup to be able to do my department's pneumatic prints, and I have run into a couple of issues which I am hoping you will be able to help me out with.


My first question is how do you get the custom attributes for the pneumatic & hydraulics category to appear in the manufacturer part data?  Specifically, the #TD attributes.  I have the TD values for other categories, such as motors, but the "value" category is blank for pneumatic.


My second question, a lot of the cylinders that we use have lots of options (bore, stroke, options, etc.), and the likelihood of reusing a part from one project to the next is slim.  Is there a way that you can use something similar to a design table in the manufacturer parts library, or some other method of reducing the number of parts that we will add to the parts library?


Thank you for any assistance you can provide.
