The glossary is a user defined list of commonly used block names. It aims to solve the problem of naming - where blocks or quantities are referred to by different names and abbreviations in different projects (or even within the same project).
The glossary can also save you time. When you create a new block with a name which is listed in the glossary, Ecolego will automatically pull the corresponding full name, symbol, etc. from the glossary.
You edit the glossary by selecting File>Glossary. The editing window has two tabs; Glossary allows you to add new entries to the glossary and edit existing entries, where Match lets you synchronize the current project with the glossary.
The table in the Glossary tab has initially only one (empty) row. Click in the Name column and enter the name of the glossary item. As you press ENTER a new empty row will appear, in which you can define the next entry.
The Match tab allows you to synchronize a project with the glossary. Names from the glossary can be given to blocks in the model, and the names of blocks in the model can be added to the glossary.
The toolbar allows you to hide unimportant rows and select which block properties to include in the match. When you de-select properties, the corresponding columns are removed from the table.
The table lists all the blocks found in the current project. You can edit the name, full name etc. directly in the table.
|Empty||No matching entry was found in the glossary|
|The full name of the block was found in the glossary|
|The name of the block was found in the glossary but with a different case and/or underscores ('_')|
|The name of the block was as an alias to an entry in the glossary|
|The name of the block is identical to a name of an entry in the glossary, but the full name, symbol or description did not match|
|The blocks name, full name, symbol etc. matches an entry in the glossary exactly.|
