Archive electrical project

Electrical project management > Archive

 

In the Archive button, you can find two commands. The first allows you to archive the selects electrical project without archive options. The second opens a wizard allowing you to define the archive options. The two commands accept the muti-selection.

The Archive command can save the electrical project with all its pages and all data used in its design (such as symbols, title blocks, or configurations).

 

An electrical project cannot be archived if it is open on another workstation (Client/Server installation) or on another session (3D add-in).
