What is a Graphic Alias and how do I configure the Graphic Alias for an object?

A Graphic Alias indicates a portion of the graphic’s item reference, up to and including the name of the folder containing this object or the controller containing this point. This means that the points of the object that you select as Graphic Alias are used to resolve the matching points in your graphic automatically and you do not have to perform explicit bindings.

To configure the Graphic Alias for an object, complete the following steps:
  1. Open the Graphics Manager and select the required object.
  2. In the Preview panel, go to Graphic Alias, and click Click To Add.
  3. Click the tree icon to open the Add Item window.
  4. Select the required item.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click the check mark to save your changes.
