Document Generator - Examples has no templates

Post by AdvCAD » 12 Apr 19, 10:18

I am trying to learn how to create a new document using PhraseExpress. 2 Issues here.
1. no templates in the Templates folder and
2. Generate Sample doc macro does not create a file.

1.
In the PhraseExpress Program Window I browsed through the subfolders hierarchy as shown below.
Document Generator - Examples
> Contract
>>Templates
There are no sample templates in the Templates folder. Should there be any sample templates in this folder when the program is first installed?
2.
When I run the macro Generate Sample doc no file is created on the Desktop.
The final step in the macro displays a notification bubble in the system tray stating the file was not found.
Update: I just watched the youtube video on Document Generator https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BrljQni ... e=youtu.be. I did not get the dialog box that is shown in the video (see attached screen capture)

I restarted PhraseExpress with admin rights and got the same result, file not found.
I have 14.0.138s installed on Win7 64 SP1. I also got the same result in the prior version.
I appreciate your help.

If you install the regular version, you should see templates and sample docs for the document generator:

Thanks for the reply. I had the same content before and after I installed 138s. I downloaded and imported the DocumentGenerator.pxp to its own folder for comparison. The imported .pxp has less content than the default installed with the program.

running version 14.0.145s now.
Generate Sample doc has never worked on this version or any previous version I have used.
the ...test.doc is not created and therefore cannot be opened when the macro completes. Does the version I am running support #system variables? How do I test a system variable to see if it is working?
