  1. On the Main toolbar, click Symbol Explorer . The Symbol Explorer opens on the right side of the main window.

  2. In the Address Box at the top of the Symbol Explorer, type the name of the folder to go to and press Enter. For example, you could type the following: C:\PROGRAM FILES\DRAWINGS\.

    You can also change the folder by clicking Explore Elsewhere at the top of the Symbol Explorer to display the Modify Location dialog box. You can then enter another folder for the Symbol Explorer to look in.

  3. Double-click a document in the Symbol Explorer. The software that created the document opens and displays the document. For example, if you double-click on the SYMBOL.sym document, the software opens and displays the SYMBOL.sym document. Or, if you double-click a document with an .htm extension, the Microsoft Internet Explorer opens.

  • You can drag any document that supports OLE 2.0 from the Symbol Explorer to the drawing sheet.

  • If you set the path of the Symbol Explorer to a folder, you can see a tree view, a shell view, and the Attribute Viewer. If you set the path to an HTML page, you can see the symbols of that page in the style of the Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 or earlier, if that version is installed. If Microsoft Internet Explorer is not installed, then the software prompts you to install it.
