Save Layout Command (File Menu)


To save the current layout of S7-PLCSIM view objects, select the menu command File > Save Layout.


· A layout is simply an arrangement of view objects. In other words, the .LAY file archives only the position and selected data format of the view objects in your simulation; the data values that are displayed in the view objects are not saved as part of the layout.
· You can save both the layout (.LAY file) and the PLC simulation (.PLC file) when you work. They are not mutually exclusive.


For information about what is archived if you save a PLC simulation (.PLC file), see Saving a Simulated PLC.
