User data is present throughout the electrical project. It is used to store personal information that can be displayed in the schematic or the reports. There are two types of user data: Translatable user data (translated during electrical project translation) and non-translatable user data.


The left part of the dialog box displays the configurations available at the application level, in other words, common to all electrical projects. The right part of the dialog box lists all configurations only available in the current electrical project.
