Load Wall Style

Any ideas why this macro to load a wall style won't work?
Code: Select allHint23=Draw 3/8" Plywood - Shear   
Icon23=Linetypes_Plywood-32             
A23=^;^S3^S5^3/8" Plyw$^S0^
The wall style is named 3/8" Plyw . I thought maybe it was the " or maybe the space but I removed those from the style name to 3/8Plyw and it still didn't work. Any ideas?

My guess would be the / mark.

should work, from ReadMe.html file
To load a Wall Style from a keyboard macro:
^;^S3^F5^4LNDFLT$^S0^
probablly is the / or "

Hi Josh,

- Are you getting an error message like "Unable to load type file - ..."?

- Is Auto 3D toggled off in the Architect menu?

- Is your wall Style (not Type) defined in Wall.stl?

- Is Wall.stl located in your C:\DataCAD 21\Support Files folder?

The following works for me:

[Load Wall Style TryMe]
Hint=Load Wall Style
Icon=
A=^;^S3^F5^TRYME$^S0^

TryMe Wall Style as defined in Wall.stl:

*tryme
3
384
1
1
>Solid
256
128
32
2
1
>Solid
384
1
1
15
2
>Solid

'Load' is a bit of a misnomer since the result of the action is to set the current wall options by picking a definition from the list of available Wall Styles in Wall.stl. As if you went to Architect (Auto 3D Off), Manage, select the desired Wall Type from the list and click OK.

I think Mark indicated there is a difference between selecting a wall style that has already been loaded into the drawing, vs selected a new wall style to be loaded into the program. i.e. picking from the top list vs the bottom list.
