1. Create and Edit Points through CimEdit

Points can be created and edited in CimEdit, when the project is stopped or running.


When a project is stopped, you will have to perform a Configuration Update to copy the configuration from the Master directory to the Data directory so they are both the same and the changes are applied to runtime.

If the project is running, make sure dynamic configuration is enabled for any point changes to immediately take effect.

Click Dynamic in the Home>Runtime group.

Points can be created or edited through any field that allows points as entries.
