Editing variables as text

As an alternative to the user friendly grid for editing variables, it is possible to declare variables as text. Text editing applies to all the variables of a group. It cannot be an I/O group. During text editing, the group and all its variables are locked in the grid so that no change can be entered from other windows.

To edit a group of variable as text, select the group in the grid and run the "Tools / Edit variables as text" menu command.
