Parameter file "CharacteristicTags"

The →Labels (respectively tags) that are available in a project are defined in the parameter file “CharacteristicTags.json”. These definitions are loaded when a new →project is created and saved in the project file. This means that it is only in the project itself possible to later change the tags for a project.

During installation, the parameter file “CharacteristicTags.json” is saved at the following location:

%ProgramData%\ELIAS GmbH\infra-convert\JsonData\CharacteristicTags.json

If another parameter file is to be loaded when starting the program, this can be specified in the startup parameter file (see Configuration and Import > Startup parameter file > Parameter file for tags).
