EPLAN Property ID

Occasionally an EPLAN a user will  have the need to display a property on a form that is already available in a schematic or a layout, Many users feel that this task can be simplified with the use of EPLAN Property IDs. Since EPLAN projects are a database file (.edb) it is not surprising that these properties would all have unique IDs. These IDs can also be displayed in the application interface which many users find convenient.

Default display: Without Property IDs enabled Custom display: With Property IDs enabled

 

To enable the EPLAN Property IDs:

Edit your user settings at the following location:

Options > Settings > User > Display > User Interface: [x] Display Identifying numbers

[x] Display Identifying numbers

The result

 

Some users may find it a bit confusing to have the properties displayed before the property names so EPLAN has an additional setting that will display the IDs “behind” or after the property names.

Display the Property IDs “behind the name”.
Options > Settings > User > Display > User Interface: [x] Display Identifying numbers
Options > Settings > User > Display > User Interface: [x] Behind the name

 

Enjoy..
