Re: Old project hangs while updating

Hello, Elwin is very sensitive when it comes to the databases. It's very important when you open the project in version 2 that the project continues to use the exact same database as when you opened in version 1. Your project is using direct paths to databases which makes it trickier but it should a...

Re: How to clone Elwin preferences and settings

Hello, The computer settings can not be moved from computer to another computer (because in Elwin v1 all computer settings are saved in the Windows registry).

Hello,

Re: Resize width of project explorer.

That seems strange. If you shutdown Elwin, then open WinReg and search for key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Elwin\Settings\EWS\Toolbar Above is for a 64-bit machine. Looks similar for 32-bit. Here you will find the settings for the toolbars. The project explorer is number 1, so check and...

Re: Component pack unit and price

Hi Russ, When defining the component in the database, then you need to know how many is the minimum order quantity for that component. If the supplier let you buy the article in singles, then you enter 1 in the pack field of the component (no matter of actual pack quantity from the manufacturer). Ex...

Re: Wire cross reference in multiple sheets

However, this rule only applies when cross reference names are used as duplicates (like commonly used L1) So: Inst/Loc1: You can use L1 from page to page within same inst/...

Re: Resize width of project explorer.

Yes, it's possible but not in an obvious way. You can only edit the width when the "Project explorer" window is floating. 1) Drag on top of the "Project explorer" field (mouse icon transforms to 4 arrows) and move and drop it on the drawing field 2) Now it becomes floating and yo...
