Objective:

Learn how to open up a Custom Block, or a built-in Toolkit, to see how it is created.

Applies to:

  • Custom Blocks

Procedure:

1. Identify your Custom Block or Toolkit by making sure it has two parallel lines down its left side. This means that the block has a nTopology Notebook running it.
