Import Standard

Last modified by superadmin on 2023/08/23 15:44

A company standard consists of setting- and component files. Most commonly are there 4 files in total that make up the company standard. These files have to be imported in a predefined order, illustrated by the numeric list below, in order to be properly added to the system. The same rule applies whether you're updating an existing standard or adding a new.

  1. Common settings
  2. Local settings
  3. Common components
  4. Local components

Import settings

Common- and local setting files are imported from the file menu. The animation below is showing how to update an existing standard by importing the common setting file. The warning dialog displayed in the animation saying the project already exists will only appear if a previous version of the same standard already exists in the database. The animation is shortened so it probably will take longer for you to import the settings file.

Import components

Common and local configuration files are imported by right-clicking on the common and local node in the tree structure. If you want to import components on both levels, start with the common level and continue with the local. Importing components usually takes a little longer than importing settings because there are also files in this import.

If components already exist at the level, a number of dialog boxes will pop up giving the user the option to manually select what should happen to each component, to import all components, and possibly overwrite existing or to skip all components. Manual selections are made at first and then the import all option is selected in the example shown below.
