Updating Function Definitions

The function definition library is managed and expanded by EPLAN Software &
Service. If a new function definition library is made available (online, for example),
you have to integrate it into your system. You must take the following steps to do this:
Export your own identifier sets, connection point designations, and connection

point descriptions (if you have created any)


Replace the function definition library
Import your own identifier sets, connection point designations, and connection

point descriptions (the EPLAN entries are overwritten during this import)
Add your own identifier sets, connection point designations, and connection

point descriptions to the new function definitions.

1.1

Replace the function definition library

1. Copy the file FctDefLib.flk into the


..\EPLAN\FunctionDefinition\EPLAN directory.

This functionality is only available for certain module packages. Info
