These options allow you to customize the default tag number name template that appears in the New Tag Number dialog box.

Note that these preferences apply to the current unit only.

Define new tag name template — These options determine how Smart Instrumentation displays new tag number names in the New Tag Number dialog box in relation to the previously created tag number.

  • No default — The data field in the New Tag Number dialog box will not display any default tag, letting you type the number you need.

  • Same as the last created tag — The data field in the New Tag Number dialog box displays the last created tag.  You can accept the displayed number, modify it, or type the number you need.

  • Same as the last created tag + 1 — The data field in the New Tag Number dialog box displays the last created tag plus 1 (one).  You can accept the displayed number, modify it, or type the number you need.

    This option is available for numeric tag names only.  If your tag names are not numeric, the data field in the New Tag Number dialog box will display the last created tag.

Ignore loop creation when creating new virtual tag — Allows you to create a virtual tag without being prompted to create a loop associated with the new virtual tag.

Use loop suffix in instrument tag — Allows you to include the loop suffix in the name of a newly created instrument tag.
