In Simulation, the "Export Branch to Shortcut" is not displayed in the Insert menu (context menu) choices. Why?

A known bug exists in 8.1 and 9.0 whereby a CAE Template license (CAETMPL) is required in order for the "Export Branch to Shortcut" choice to be displayed.
This is not the intended operation, as no additional licenses are to be required.
The bug is to be resolved in Simulation 10.0.

Workaround for enabling the "Export Branch to Shortcut" in 8.1 / 9.0

1. Edit the file

For 8.1: C:Program FilesANSYS Incv81AISOLDesignSpaceDSPagesxmldscontextmenu.xml.
For 9.0: C:Program FilesANSYS Incv90AISOLDesignSpaceDSPagesxmldscontextmenu.xml.

2. Search for these lines (should start at line #956):

<entry stringid="ID_ExportBranch">
<actionCallback objectId="1" methodName="doExportBranch"/>
<actionCallback objectId="1" methodName="FireFinished"/>
<visibilityCallback objectId="10" methodName="CanInsertTemplate"/>

3. Remove the line that starts with <visibilityCallback...

4. Save the file.

Note : The user will still see a "customized user interface" icon in the Simulation module's status bar to indicate that a non-standard UI is being run.
