This chapter describes the comment fields in the dialog boxes and tables (see Figure 4.12, for example). The comments that you can insert graphically are described in Chapter 11.3.6.

Using comments

You can enter any text into the comment fields. With the [Import Comment] button shown on the left, you can also use predefined text modules that are managed across models.

A dialog box appears showing a list of stored text modules.

Figure 11.9 Import Comment dialog box

The List of Default Comments contains all comments that are suitable for the category. Click the [Import] button to insert the selected comment into the comment field of the dialog box. If the comment field already contains text, it is overwritten. Then you can further edit the comment in the comment field.

Use the button shown on the left to add the selected comment to a comment field text that is already available.

Creating and managing comments

In the Import Comment dialog box (Figure 11.9), you can create new text modules with the button shown on the left. Alternatively, you can use the Comments tab in the Program Options dialog box where all comments are managed. To open the dialog box, use the menu option

    • Options → Program Options

or the toolbar button shown on the left.
