Configuring the Default Graphic Object Type
In the atidefaults.bcf file, the default attribute of the dmsgraphicobjtype element sets the default PTC Server object type for graphic objects added to a PTC Server by Arbortext Editor and Arbortext Publishing Engine. The .dcf file for the document type is used to determine which graphic tag or attribute to use when inserting references to graphics that already exist in the PTC Server. If the .dcf file has multiple primary graphics tags, the user is prompted to pick one.
By default, graphic objects created by the PTC Server connection are the Dynamic Document object type. This type is a subtype of the EPM Document type. You can set the default object type to be a subtype of the Dynamic Document type. However, you must specify a fully qualified subtype name in the following format:
wt.epm.EPMDocument|prefix.DynamicDocument|prefix.subtype2| ... |prefix.subtypeN
The prefix is generated by reversing the internet domain for the default organization. Each component must specify the system name of each subtype, not the display name, as given in the PTC Server Manage Types interface. Consult your Arbortext Content Manager or Windchill documentation for more information about object types.
Following is an example dmsgraphicobjtype element:
<dmsgraphicobjtype default="wt.epm.EPMDocument|com.acme.DynamicDocument|com.acme.Graphic"/>
This setting can be overridden for a specific document type by using the dmsgraphicobjtype setting in a document-type-specific burst configuration file.
