Product Information

The Product Information dialog can be found on the Toolbar and on the Articles tab, Tools group. Click acArticleInfo.

As soon as you select an article with commercial information, the window contains the information on the current configuration stored by the manufacturer. This can be article texts, assembly instructions, product data sheets, contact and delivery information as well as many other data.

You are a manufacturer and want to provide your product information in the pCon.planner? Please send us an email to pi-support@easterngraphics.com or contact your EasternGraphics partner.

The Product Information window will always display information on the latest selected product. This means that the information on this product will stay visible during your further planning steps. This allows you to access the texts and data for the last opened article.

The Copy entry allows you to copy marked texts from the information.

 

Adding Product Information to Layout Pages or Plans

Pieces of Product Information can easily be positioned on your Layout pages or directly in your planning:

Simple texts can be marked with the mouse and dragged and dropped into your planning.

Images stored in the Product Information window hang on your cursor after double-clicking them and can be positioned as desired.

Assembly instructions, brochures and other PDF files can be opened with a simple mouse click to preview them in the PDF Import window of the pCon.planner. From there import them as usual.
