You can select a default Converter from the drop-down menu on the Converter Library page under the Components Library. Click Converter to see the list of Converter types. You can view and specify the properties of converters in the Converter Library. You can create a new converter by copying an existing one. After you copy a converter, change the properties as required and give the new converter a unique name to distinguish it from the others. HOMER adds this new converter to your library when you click OK. The new converter then appears in the list of available converter types on the Converter Set Up page under Design. See the Library section of the help for instructions.
