Each used plant can be amended. Either by the substitution with a new plant, by selecting a new quality, or by changing the distribution.
The group or the object that is supposed to be changed has to be marked in the object tree. Hereby, it is possible to change an object which inherited the plant allocation and thus, the allocation occured on a superordinate level.
A change of the plant species or the quality is done with [Edit] in the tab Plants. The distribution and therefore the calculation of the numbers is changed in the field underneath. In both cases, the plant to be amended has to be marked in the upper table.
All changes are inherited automatically to sub-groups and objects.
Exemption: Were amendments made for a sub-group or object in the tab plants (distribution, quality, addition of plants) this counts as manual change ⇒ this group or object does not inherit the properties automatically.
For theses cases there are two special options in the field Refresh, which can be activated to make the exemption explained above obsolete.
Is All activated, then the settings of all sub-groups and objects are overwritten, regardless if there are a new distribution, another quality, or added plants.
Is Qualities activated, then the plant whose quality was amended is searched in all sub-groups and objects. Only the quality of this plant is then updated.
With the command DCOPY (see Copy with objects) plants can be copied multiple times in the drawing. The difference to the general command COPY is that objects detected in the Object-Manager will be copied in the Object-Manager, as well.
Therefore, for example, this command is useful to copy individual plants (feature plants, individual trees).
With the command LCOPY (see Copy objects on a line) plants can be copied along existing lines. The application corresponds with the command Block line copy. The difference to the command LPBAND is that objects detected in the Object-Manager will be copied in the Object-Manager, as well.
Therefore, for example, this command is useful to copy existing plants in a line (avenues, hedges).
