  4. Optionally, add a short, meaningful description.
  5. Click [OK]. The "New Schema" dialog is closed, the new schema is adopted as the current one.
  6. Click [OK]. The new workspace is created under the name you entered. The current interface settings regarding open "dockable" dialogs, dialog positions, etc. are saved.


You can change the surface configuration of this workspace if necessary (e.B. change the size and position of "dockable" dialogs (navigators), etc. and save. You can also export this workspace and import it on other clients so that all EPLAN users could work with the same workspace.
