Hello Sandhu_Mol,
Thanks for your question.

Basically what you do is type "fc" in SM command line.
After that, you type the name of your custom Format Control, and then click on New button.

I am attaching screenshots to this thread.1.png2.png

Hope this helps!
BR!

Hi,

 

But I don't have the  new button option in my format control.

Please find the attached image.

Also could you please let me know how we can set the connection between an already existing form and a newly creating fc.

 

Thanks & Regards,
