Summary

As its name suggests, the Data Management – Device Sheets page of the Preferences dialog allows you to manage the device sheet related features.

Access

The Data Management – Device Sheets  page is part of the main Preferences dialog (DXP » Preferences) and is accessed by clicking the Device Sheets entry under the Data Management folder, in the left hand pane of the dialog. 

Options/Controls

Options

  • Make Device Sheets Read Only -  Disable this option and you can edit the objects on the device sheet that is associated by the device sheet symbol on a parent sheet. By default this option is enabled and you cannot edit device sheets.
  • Display "Read Only" Watermark -  Enable this option and the device sheets will have the 'Read Only' as the watermark for the background and to denote that device sheets are not editable.
  • Display Device Sheet Watermark -  Enable this option and the device sheets will have the recycle symbol as the watermark for the background.

Note if the Display "Read Only" Watermark option is enabled then you will be able to see quickly if the device sheet is read only or editable. This option is only accessible when this Make Device Sheets Read Only is enabled.
