The use of  " User modules" in "Designer" is comfortable. Unfortunately, these modules do not allow to use all the features of the material.
Example 1: "Timer16" does not allow to use the mode "multi-shot".
Example 2: "SwitchCapConfig" does not allow to configure the entry "Analog Modulator Interface ( Mod Bits)"

What is the best way of adding these configuration?

"Custom User Modules" seems planned for it but I do not find documentation or example of use.

Some customization can be achieved -


There was a period where actual user module customization was being discussed,

see attached. I have not seen open discussion on this for several years, so beware

it may not be usable in recent Designer Releases. Consider experimenting with it.


Regards, Dana.

Hello Joel,


I know this post is a little outdated, but still thought it would be better to provide more insight on User Module Customization.


With PD 5.3 release a lot of things with respect to Custom user modules have been simplified. For minor changes and one-time custom use, you can follow the below steps;


1. Place the user module you want to edit.

2. Set the parameters, name etc in the UM parameters/Wizard.

3. Generate the project by pressing F6.

4. After generation is complete without any errors, Right-Click on your UM in workspace explorer and then click 'LOCK'

5. Now you can edit the user module files available under "lib -> Library Source files" in the workspace explorer. These changes will not be over written by designer when generating the project again.


For creating a complete custom user module out of an existing UM, you can find details in the help section of PD 5.3. See attached image. You can simply press F1 in designer and then search for 'Custom user module', you should find details on how to do them.
