  1. In the Format Manager main window, select the format category that needs the new format.

  2. Click Edit > Add Format.

     You must select a format folder in the Tree view to enable the Add Format command.

  3. On the Add Format dialog box, type a description in the Name box.

  4. Define a new field or new text for the format. For more information, refer to the Insert a Field or Insert Text procedures.

 To ensure that conversion of units is performed successfully, any additional texts that are added using the Text Properties dialog box must be placed to the right of the units that have already been added using the Field Properties dialog box.  When creating a new format always add the format fields before adding any text.  You can also use SmartText in Catalog Manager to embed text into label formats.  Formats that have embedded text should be used only for label formats and not for properties that appear in the Properties window.
