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
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
