How do I load a sample set showing the "controls" display?

Hello! I am trying to load a sample set using the "controls" display available in the CODM but seem to be missing a step somewhere. I've been through the instructions in the CODM many times but to no avail. I basically want to have a very simple stop display that lists all of the divisions and stops in columns. Any suggestions?
Thanks!
BH

Hello BH,

To show the basic system-generated virtual console layout screens, you need to set the relevant _General.CustomDisplay_EnableStdPages_ attributes in your CODM organ definition to 'Y'.

Hello BH,

In case you weren't aware of this: to use the Custom Organ Design Module (CODM) you need to have, or to have created, a CODM organ definition file (XML) file -- you can't use the CODM to edit off-the-shelf sample sets' organ definitions -- they aren't usually in CODM format.

If you *do* have a CODM organ definition, then please see the 'Design tools | View Custom Organ Design Module user guide' for how to edit it. The 'Design tools | View Custom Organ Design Module ... format documentation' also covers the relevant attributes.

(I'm afraid I can't give detailed instructions on how to create a CODM organ definition from scratch, since it's potentially an involved and somewhat technical process -- the CODM is effectively a programming language -- but the user documentation above covers that.)
