How to change the name and description retroactively for my model? How do I get back to the 'General Data' dialog box?


You can access the General Data using the menu 'Edit' → 'Model data' → 'General Information' see Figure 1.

Alternatively, right-click 'Model Data' in the Data Navigator and select 'General Data' in the shortcut menu, see Figure 2.

In the dialog box, you can then adjust the Description or the Model Type (plane, spatial).

It is possible to change the model name in Windows Explorer or in the Project Manager. The latter can be accessed via the menu 'File' → 'Project Manager' or the corresponding button.

Then, select the model and select the menu 'Model' → 'Properties'. In the 'Model Properties' dialog box, you can change the name.
