    1 Creating and Deleting Pages In the Pages - navigator dialog you can create new pages and delete existing pages.

    1.1 Creating pages

    Precondition:

    You have opened a project.

    1. Select the menu item Page > New.

    The New page dialog is opened. If a page was selected in the Pages - navigator dialog, then its properties are loaded into the dialog. If a structure level was selected, the properties of the first page below this level are loaded. Only the grid defined in the plot frame is adopted.

    2. Click [Clear fields] if you would like to clear the data fields of the new page, i.e., delete their content.

    The contents of all of the data fields are deleted. Only the page type of the

    currently selected page is retained. The automatically suggested page name is also retained. Scale and grid are taken from the plot frame and are also retained.

    3. Enter the properties for the new page. You can select the structure identifiers (such as higher-level function and mounting location) from the existing values using [...] next to the Full page name. You can also manually enter the identifiers and create new ones in the process.

    4. Choose the desired Page type from the drop-down list.

    5. If you would like to create several pages, then click [Apply] several times.

    With every click on [Apply], EPLAN generates a new page. Your user code is automatically entered into the Creator field.

    6. Click [OK].

    EPLAN checks if the page name that you have entered already exists and, if so, an appropriate message is displayed, in which you can choose another name.

    The (last) new page is then displayed in the graphical editor.

    Note: Once you have entered a new structure identifier, EPLAN then opens the Place Identifiers dialog. Click [OK] to add the new identifier to the database.

    Tip:

    You can use the button on the standard toolbar to create new pages.

    In the Pages - dialog, select Popup menu > New. Any page or structure level may be selected when you do this.

    1.2 Delete pages 1. Select the relevant pages in the Pages - navigator dialog .

    2.1.2 Open a page in multi-user operation

    A schematic page can only be edited by a single user. As soon as a user opens a page, then it is locked. A second user can only open this page read-only and receives a message stating this fact. The message contains the Windows login name and the long name of the first user, so that the second user knows who has locked the page and can then discuss this with them if necessary.
