It is very easy to select and insert devices. You can select them directly by clicking on them. You can also select several devices by using the SHIFT/CTRL keys.
•A device can be added to a target from a source (e.g. the Catalog window) using drag & drop (provided that the target supports this function). This function is very similar to the drag & drop behavior in Windows® when working with files and folders.
•Using the Catalog, you can add one or more devices to the topology or to building parts or trades simultaneously. In addition, you can specify the area in the building to which the devices should be added, even in different (open) projects.
•Inserting and copying have the same meaning here; in order to insert something, some kind of copy procedure must take place first (even in the product catalog, devices to be inserted must first be temporarily copied).
•If several selected devices are inserted/copied at the same time, they must then be inserted individually, one device at a time. Consequently, using Undo also deletes the devices one at a time. This can lead to several different scenarios:
o1..n TP devices are added together with 1..n PL devices in one TP line.
oThe TP devices were selected first
ETS copies all TP devices. Cancellation and ETS message for PL device; previous, successful copy operations remain unchanged.
oThe PL devices were selected first
Cancellation and ETS message for PL device (immediately).
As can be seen, the result is dependent on the selection made. This scenario also applies analogously for other media.
oBy default, ETS inserts or copies devices to the first available PA/IA in the line; after this, the line is "filled up" until there are no more PA/IAs available in the line. Any further devices are also inserted in the line, but they are not given a unique address (X.Y.-).
oThe behavior for the assignment of PA/IAs during Insert/Copy can be customized using this ETS App.
