Menu: Home > Electrical project management

Quick access toolbar

 

Two tabs are available. One shows all the electrical projects (All), the other shows the recently accessed projects (Recent).

 

When the electrical project is shown in blue and bold, it is present in the Pages tab of the dockable panel and at least one drawing is open. It is the current electrical project.

When the electrical project is shown in blue, it means that it is present in the Pages tab of the dockable panel but that no drawing is open.

When the electrical project is shown in black, it is absent in the Pages tab of the dockable panel and no drawing is open.

When the electrical project is shown in red, it is open on another workstation.

 

By default, the electrical project descriptions are displayed in the software language. If you want to display them in another language, select it in the list available in the ribbon.
