Add hierarchy to user-defined template attributes

You can add your own hierarchy to the Template Editor attribute tree.

  1. Open your copy of the contentattributes_userdefined.lst file.

    For example, MY_contentattributes_userdefined.lst. Do not modify the original contentattributes_userdefined.lst file.

  2. Scroll down to the list of attributes assigned to content types.
  3. Define the hierarchy in square brackets, between USERDEFINED. and the attribute name.

    For example:


    Notice the periods after the brackets, and between the hierarchies.

  4. Save the changes.

    The new hierarchy is shown in the attribute tree:


User-defined attributes are case sensitive. Ensure that you enter the attribute name using the correct case for all characters.
