Hexagon recommends that users do not modify the delivered SharedContent (Symbols) files, as Hexagon might modify these delivered files in each release. If you need to modify the delivered files, you should first copy the dll to the Custom Symbols folder directly under the Shared Content (Symbols) folder. Then, rename the copied file.

Some of the delivered symbols may have symbol definition changes. If the major version number of the symbol definition was not incremented, neither the upgrade procedure outlined in this document nor the Synchronize Model with Catalog command will update already existing occurrences in the model that now have changed symbol definitions. If the major version number was changed, then the symbol definition in the catalog and all occurrences in the model will be updated by this upgrade process. If the minor version number of a symbol was incremented or a new aspect was added and the major version number was not incremented, then the symbol definition in the catalog will not be updated by this upgrade process. If a symbol definition has been changed and a new occurrence is placed in the model by the following types of actions, the new occurrence may be different from the already existing occurrence:

  • Placing new objects

  • Copy/Paste

  • Model Data Reuse

  • Any other command that causes an existing symbol occurrence to recompute

In order to apply the new symbol definition to existing occurrences, a custom command is available to update all occurrences in the model to match the new symbol definition. This is only required if the major version is not incremented or an aspect was added to the symbol definition. The procedure is to run the Update Symbol custom command (SymbolTestCmds.CUpdateSymbolDefinition) to apply the symbol definition changes to all existing occurrences in the model.
