Once the application is selected and the information is inserted, the Create button should be accessible now and pressing it will create the model and load the application. Usually the Nozzle does update, but it has been seen were the 2D Browser displays that this has not happened like the image below – This can be a bit of a pain to fix because the program believes that the nozzle doesn’t have all the correct information when it does between the two tools.

See the list below for information on each one. This is the second in our series on LiveCycle Data Services. Before one begins to model, there are a few things that they should be aware of.

Now to make the change from Size 6 to Size 4.
