Function Description
Save as … Export the currently set definitions for tags, categories and stamp templates to a directory of your choice.
The configuration files “CharacteristicTags.json”, “SpecialCategories.json” and “StampTemplates.json” are exported.
Set as default (Admin) Set the currently defined definitions for tolerance tables, tags, categories and stamp templates as default.
The definitions for the tolerance tables are written into “Settings.json” in the programme data directory (“ProgramData”). The definitions for tags, categories and stamp templates are written by overwriting the configuration files “CharacteristicTags.json”, “SpecialCategories.json” and “StampTemplates.json” in the program data directory.

Note How to start infra CONVERT in administrator mode is described here: “Settings > Settings > Administration > Open”.

When setting as default the project template files in the directory “%ProgramData%/ELIAS GmbH/infra-Convert” are exchanged. During an update they will be overwritten with standard template files and deleted during uninstallation. They should therefore be saved and inserted after an over-installation (update) or new installation.
