Notes

1        Translatable data attributes can be shown in different languages by editing the “L1” suffix of the attribute tag. L1 refers to Language 1 of the project and can be changed to L2 to refer to Language 2, and so on. It can also be changed to the language code, e.g. EN for English.

2        For all types of user and translatable data attributes (including Description), numbers beyond 1 and 2 can be used by changing the relevant number in the attribute tag. E.g. The tag for User data 3 is …_TX_2 while that for Translatable data 3 is _TZ_3_L1.

3           If using an ERP database connection, the User data attributes will correspond to the user data fields in the ERP database for that manufacturer part.

4        The attribute tags for function are the same as those for location but with LOC replaced by FUN.

Notes

1        Translatable data attributes can be shown in different languages by editing the “L1” suffix of the attribute tag. L1 refers to Language 1 of the project and can be changed to L2 to refer to Language 2, and so on. It can also be changed to the language code, e.g. EN for English.

2        For all types of user and translatable data attributes (including Description), numbers beyond 1 and 2 can be used by changing the relevant number in the attribute tag. E.g. The tag for User data 3 is …_TX_2 while that for Translatable data 3 is …_TZ_3_L1.

3        For revision attributes, the index code character (the 0 above) can be replaced by the following codes:

0 : 1st index; 1: 2nd index…; -0: last index; -1: second to last index…

Some of the properties of the current revision index can be referenced by removing the index code from the attribute (but keeping the underscore). E.g. #BUN_REV_CREATED_ON_ gives the creation date of the current index. This does not work for description, user data and translatable data attributes.

4        This attribute corresponds to the number of the automatic mark for the drawing, even if a different manual mark has been set.

5        The attribute tags for function are the same as those for location but with LOC replaced by FUN.
