Sheet size in Sheet Template

Hi All
I have created some A5 Templates from the original A4 Templates by going into File\Title and Sheet Setup and changing the Width and Height.
How do I ADD the new paper size to Sheet Size in the File\Title and Sheet Setup\Sheet Template\Border and Size Tab\Sheet Size?

Any help
Thanks
Mike

No Graphic when placing Part

Hi
I have just found that when I manually enter a Part from a Library to a PCB I do not see any Graphic (Outline) to help with placement.
All I get is a small white square.
Have I tuned something off or what?? Design Manager is On and ALL layers are checked.

Thanks again for any help

This is then cut to size, placed over the blank sensitised PCB and then exposed to UV light. The board is...

Where is the Solder Mask in the original libraries?

Hi. I am just about to make my first PCB using DipTrace, after using Protel99SE for years. Everything has gone fine until I went to print a Solder Mask layer and nothing appeared. :shock: I went to my Pattern Library in Library Editor and I could not find a Solder Mask layer. All of my libraries hav...
