  1. As an aside, user defined types should not start with the the two characters dm… Early in my DCTM career, I was working on a demo for a company (let’s say their name was Dominion) and I created types dmn_beast, dmn_ogre, etc… A bunch of capabilities around modifying these types was locked down in DA for example just because of those 2 leading characters.
