RCO-tool – 18.104.22.16800
a new version of the RCO-tool is available for download in the partner portal.
For faster and more efficient work, the interface of the web editor has been revised. The functionality remains completely unchanged and previous projects can be opened and edited without any problems. During this revision, we have placed special emphasis on working on a laptop, in order to be able to display the drawing area in full screen as far as possible.
We also added an image storage in the form of a folder on the desktop for the Web Menu Editor. Images with the same name are used multiple times and are only stored once in the project. In the same way, images from the project-associated clipboard can be used.
In addition, the content of the “Help” button in the tool has been extended. There is now a direct link to the partner portal and the online manual.
We have summarized all innovations for you in pictures. If you click on the images, you can also view them in full screen
When redesigning the web editor, our focus was to maximize the drawing area and yet not to arrange the functions too close to each other. The control panels can also be hidden using the pins to see even more of the drawing area.
There have also been some changes to the background images of the visualizations. We have revised and decisively improved the saving and accessing of images within a project.
But what does that mean for you? As soon as you open a project, the images contained in it are automatically stored in a separate images folder. This folder allows a variety of functions while working on the project. And as soon as you save and close the project, the images will be integrated back into the project file and you will have just one single e3gx project file as before.
Due to the possibility to use the background images several times, something has also changed in the handling within the web editor.
The suffix can be appended to the data points when creating variables to make data point creation even more flexible.
You don’t have the help at hand right now? No problem, we have now made the complete documentation available online, directly from the RCO-tool.
