Feature of the month March 2023 – Syncing

Syncing allows you to navigate effortlessly between different workspaces, such as editors or windows. By synchronizing the open workspaces, you don’t have to search for the desired objects in other editors. This saves you a lot of time and effort and allows you to focus on your work. To do this, select the object you want to synchronize and press Ctrl + Q (from top to bottom), or Ctrl + Shift + Q (from bottom to top).

If you only have one window with a workspace open, you can change the default behavior by pressing the Alt key and double-clicking on a hot-click icon. For this, you should pay attention to the workspace settings in your personal desktop area.

In case two workspaces are not enough for you, other windows with additional workspaces can be opened. And even then, seamless synchronization is possible. With Ctrl + Alt + Q you can easily decide in which workspace the selected object should be displayed. Whether it is the function net, CP, or PFD, it’s up to you. This way, you always keep an overview and can work efficiently without wasting precious time searching for the desired object.
