The Configuration window is intended for managing configuration objects.
A configuration is displayed as a tree where each branch represents a certain configuration component. Configuration objects are represented in the tree by their names. The tree nodes combine configuration objects that are logically related and have the same purpose.
For example, the Catalogs node contains all catalogs available in the configuration. Each catalog contains subordinate branches, which represent its subordinate objects: attributes, tabular sections, forms, and templates. You can create any number of subordinate objects.
Configuration objects can be arranged in any order within a node. Lists that display configuration objects inherit this order.
You can add objects by clicking Actions - Add. First you have to specify the object type by selecting it in the configuration tree. If you select a subordinate object, a subordinate object of the specified type will be added.
You can search an object for references to other objects by clicking Actions - Find references in object. You can search the entire configuration for references that point to a specific object by clicking Actions - Find references to object.
To view only objects that you locked in the configuration repository, click Actions - Locked objects.
To view and edit object properties, use the property palette (select an object and then click Actions - Properties) or the configuration object editor window (click Actions - Change). Some objects do not have an editor window.
To move a configuration object, select it in the Configuration window and use the toolbar buttons of the Configuration window.
Quick search for configuration objects by multiple substrings separated by spaces is available. Enter the substrings in the search field at the top of the Configuration window. The search is started once you enter two characters that are not spaces. The search is performed in object names, synonyms, and comments.
When the quick search is in effect, the tree only shows objects that match the search criteria and their parent objects.
Matching object name parts are displayed in red.
Objects that have the search string in their synonyms or comments have no marking.
Names of objects whose subordinate objects match the search criteria are displayed in gray.
To clear the search string, click the Clear button or press Esc.
Note. While the search is in effect, adding a configuration object that does not match the search criteria cancels the search.You can switch to the search field by pressing Ctrl+Alt+M.
