I hope this will help (and make sense on a late Friday afternoon!):

 Your Concept menu and it's supporting files should be stored in your home
directory under cdssetup/concept -
I find that editting the files by hand instead of using the Concept Tool>
Customize works better for me...
1. You will need to make a script:
                                examples:


                                   grid_1_5.txt:
                                       grid .1 5

                                        bom_ignore.txt
                                        property
                                        $<THIS WILL ADD BOM_IGNORE: SELECT
THE SYMBOL 
                                        BOM_IGNORE=TRUE
                                        $<PLACE THE PROPERTY

                                        netspacingtype.txt:
                                        property
                                        $<LINESPACE: SELECT THE NET:
                                        NET_SPACING_TYPE=
                                        $<ENTER THE VALUE IN MILS (EXAMPLES:
SPACE006,SPACE030,SPACE100)
                                        $<PLACE THE PROPERTY

2. edit your concepthdl_cmd.txt file (or use Tools> Customize and then pick
the Command tab):

                        example:
                                        /* concepthdl_cmd.txt file, written
03/31/05 16:25:12 */
                                        FileVersion 1;
                                        BOM_IGNORE "bom_ignore" "" "script
ecad\scripts\PE14\concept\bom_ignore.txt" ;
                                        NET_SPACE "add net_spacing_type" ""
"script ecad\scripts\PE14\concept\netspacingtype.txt" ;
                GRID_1_5 "grid_1_5" "" "script
ecad\scripts\PE14\concept\grid1_5.txt" ;


3. edit the concepthdl_menu.txt -add the commands to the end of the file (or
use the Tools> Customize and pick the Menus tab):

         example:

                                        /* concepthdl_menu.txt file, written
03/31/05 16:25:12 */

                                        FileVersion 14.2;

                                        Window Schematic {
                                            "&File" {
                                                "&New" _FILE_NEW;
