Sharing a Custom Format

Custom formats can be read from user-defined folders (including network shares).

This option is especially useful for groups who work together. For instance, if an entire workgroup uses just a few custom formats, keeping the definitions in one place means that everyone doesn't have to have a copy. More importantly, whenever any of the definitions are updated, the entire group automatically has access to the new version.
