There are separate settings options in pCon.planner PRO for articles and Catalogs. These are presented in this section.

Article Settings

Change Rendering of Articles in Design

pCon.planner_Pro_properties_01

Whatever the default settings, the rendering of articles can be changed. In the Edit Articles group in the Articles tab there are three buttons provided for this: Display 2D, Display 3D and Display 2D and 3D.

To change the rendering of an Article, select it and then click on whichever of the three buttons you desire.

Article Creation Default Settings

pCon.planner_Pro_properties_02

First open the Products catalog (via the Toolbar, for instance). The symbol circled in red in in the upper right corner of the Products window which opens takes you to the rendering settings for articles.

When you have clicked on it, a dialog with three tabs will open.

pCon.planner_Pro_properties_03

There are two types of setting you can make on the Miscellaneous tab.

On the one hand, you can set how to display properties in the Properties Editor (Text only, Key only, Key and Text).

On the other hand, you can set articles newly inserted into pCon.planner to be rendered by default as 2D only, 3D only or 2D and 3D.

pCon.planner_Pro_properties_04

The language setting options for articles are to be found by clicking on the symbol within the Products-Catalog (circled in red on the upper screenshot) and then selecting the second tab, Languages. Here you will find Article Languages and you can set your first and second choices for the language in which the properties of articles are to appear in the Properties Editor. If the first choice of language is not available, the program will show the second.

Catalog Settings

Define Default Catalog

pCon.planner_Pro_properties_06

In the Products catalog, which can be opened from the Toolbar, for instance, a click on the cogwheel symbol which is marked in red on the screenshot above will take you to the Catalog Settings. The Catalogs register is where to define which catalog is to appear when you click on the OFML Catalog button.

This setting saves you navigation time in instances where you are using the data from the same catalog all the time for a certain project.
