Hi,I am using axlDBCreatePropDictEntry in in my allegro.ilinit file to add the user properties in all designs, if the do not exist already.I can add user properties such as design_name, design_no etc. to a format symbol and I can see and modify the properties when the symbol is added to a board.The problem occurs when I try to make the property values visible. The format symbol will not save (create symbol) citing :WARNING(SPMHA1-264): Sector table is not empty .... use dbdoctor to resolve. 0 SECTOR TABLE @60625368 Dbdoctor reports no errors. So I have to save the symbol with the property values invisible.Legal Classes for Format symbols are: Board Geometry, DRAWING_FORMAT, MANUFACTURING, and I have triedvarious of these classes/sub classes withe same results.When I place the format symbol in a board design I can see the properties by selecting the line object they areattached to. I can make them visible with menu>Display>Property...>Graphics>Create and then position themwhere I want. However if I modify the property again the visible value does not change. If I repeat the above menupick all of the values are updated but return to their default positions.The object of the excercise for me is to have various drawing borders, gerber layer info etc updated from a singlepopup menu but I don't want to proceed with the popup skill file until I can find a way to manipulate the data manually.Perhaps I am approaching the problem in the wrong way?Any help appreciated.

A couple of sector table sisuens are fixed with 16.6 s016 so maybe its worth updating.
Also, what happens if you dó run dbdoctor as suggested?
In reply to Ejlersen:
I have just updated to S016 but have the same result, if I make a user property visible in a format symbol I can not save the symbol.
Unfortunately dbdoctor reports no errors.
If I hide the property again the symbol saves ok.I get the feeling that what I am trying to do is not supported...
