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 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).

Tip For more comfortable working, you can use a text editor with extended functions, e.g. syntax and error highlighting, instead of the on-board Windows “editor”. Examples are the free programs Visual Studio Code from Microsoft and Notepad++.
