Value Templates from Storage

Use the template function to store values in a central storage and retrieve them later. Reusing identical content saves a lot of time when editing your maps.

This function can be found in the Add New Value or Edit Tooltip Value dialog: The arrow buttons Add Template to Storage and Insert Template From Storage allow you to store and retrieve text modules. Please select a meaningful name if you create and add new ones.

If you click on the arrow button , the storage area Insert Template from Storage is opened:

  1. All existing templates are displayed by name. Click on a template with the left mouse button to select it (the element is colored blue). The icons on the right-hand side are now available.
  2. The Insert button is used to add a template to the list of tooltips.
  3. Use the Rename button to give the template a new name.
  4. Click the Delete button to delete the template from the storage.
