Hi, I have followed instruction to create a tool category via User Settings, but unable to view the category on the pallet, any help would be much appreciated

Thanks

Hi @mseelan

 

I think when I built my macro categories they showed up automatically. Can you try clicking on the "Add/Remove Tools" button on the top right and see if your new category shows?

HI@ddiesel, tried it, it does not show up on the add/remove menu either?

Do you see the new category you created under user settings?

So strange. What version are you on? I'm on 2018.4.

 

And how frustrating. I'm sorry this is not just working for you!

No worries at all, I am 2018.4, is there a specified path that this should be saved, maybe I should try saving at an alternate location?

I've been playing around with it to recreate your issue. Can you save your macros to a new network location and set a new category under User Settings>Macros? Make sure this is a different location than your regular macro folder.

tried at multiple locations, still no luck, might just end up inserting it from the canvas
