Change numbering


In addition to overwriting the stamp label in the characteristic properties window (see User Interface> Function Windows > Characteristic properties), there are three functions available to change the characteristic numbers:

  • Manually number
  • Number clockwise
  • Number in reading direction
  • Renumber by list position

These are described as alternative steps (2a to 2c) in the workflow of this chapter.

Note Prefix and suffix are not overwritten when numbering.
