Edit Macros

You can edit macros created on the Compatible Units tab in the ArcFM System Favorites Manager tool. This tab is available only to users with Designer installed and a valid Designer license activated.

NOTE: When creating a new macro favorite, you can only edit the Work Function and any Extended Data associated with the Compatible Unit. You can edit fields on the GIS Unit.

    NOTE: The Compatible Units tab is available only if you have Designer installed and a valid Designer license activated.
  4. Right-click a Macro and select Edit Macro.
  5. Select a CU in the macro and edit its attributes and properties (e.g., Description, Snap Like Feature) as needed.
  6. Click OK to save and close the dialog.
