External Editor enables a third party (contractor, engineering company, and so forth) to modify your process data sheets and the unprotected fields of your specification sheets without the need to use the Intergraph Smart® Instrumentation software program or a special report generator.
Using External Editor, you can open a process data or specification sheet and modify it. After modification, you save to the same file or to a new file. You can then reopen the file in Smart Instrumentation for further processing. You can also print process data and specification sheets from External Editor.
External Editor is a stand-alone program that you need to install in order to use it. This document describes the hardware requirements for installing External Editor. In addition, this document provides step-by-step instructions on how to install and uninstall External Editor.
