  1. Open a project, and then select a specification or the project.


    Open a catalog, and then select a table.

  2. Click the View tab, and then click Properties in the Display panel.

  3. Double-click Custom Data. Alternatively, right-click Custom Data, and then click Add.

    1. In the List Items dialog box, click New and then type the information that you want to appear in Custom Data.

    2. Repeat step A for different items. Each line constitutes a new selection in Default Value.

    3. Click OK.

  8. In the Required Input list, select Yes or No.

  9. Type a default value in the Default Value box. If you selected List, that information is now listed here. Select an item from the list.

  10. If you want to attach new custom data to the component, then select the Attach Field to Components check box. For more information, see New Field Dialog Box.
