You can configure how symbols for objects and detectors are labeled in graphics. If you do not change anything all labels are displayed with the default settings. There are different levels of changed label settings:

  1. General label settings that apply to all labels. The general label settings replace the default settings. Refer to: Configuring Labels.
  2. Object type specific label settings that apply to labels of symbols for objects of that object type. Object type specific label settings are inherited by all children of the object type. Refer to: Configuring Type Specific Labels.
  3. Individual label settings that apply to one single object. Refer to: Configuring Individual Labels.
  4. Additionally you can change the displayed label text for an OIS component and all its children in the System Tree. Refer to: Configuring Subsystem Specific Text in Labels.
