Display Sets > Auto-Define
Project Manager > Display Sets > Auto-Define

Displays the Auto-Define Display Sets dialog box, allowing you to pick items to include in a new display set by their PDS label data. The software automatically creates an individual display set for each value of the label data that you select.

  1. Click Display Sets > Auto-Define.
    From the Project Manager, select Display Sets in the tree view and then right-click to open a shortcut menu. Click Auto-Define.

    Auto-Define Display Sets Dialog Box

  2. Select the labels for the new display sets.

    The Auto-Define Display Sets dialog box supports the standard Windows functionality of using SHIFT to select consecutive items (click the first item, press and hold down SHIFT, and then click the last item) and using CTRL to select non-consecutive items (press and hold down CTRL, and then click each item).

  3. Specify a starting ID number.

  4. (Optional) Check the Delete existing display sets with the same names option to delete existing display sets when it automatically generates new ones.

  • The labels that you select from are read in from all of the labels files associated with the .dri file that you opened.

  • The Start ID field defaults to the first unused ID number. Once the automatic definition process begins, the Start ID increments once per generated display set, skipping any ID already in use.

  • The Delete existing display sets with the same name option overwrites existing display sets that have the same names as the new ones being generated. In other words, the existing displays sets are overwritten if they have the same names as the display sets being defined, if they are stored in a folder with the same name as the folder Auto-Define is creating, and if they contain Auto-Define Display Set or AutoGroup Display in their description.

  • You can stop an auto-definition run by pressing the ESC key. Smart Review stops the process at the next label.

  • To automatically define display sets, PDS or Smart 3D label data must exist.
