Auto-generate device layout for all rooms

When creating a profile with a lot of rooms and/or for a lot of different target devices, setting up the device layouts can be a tedious task. The function for automatically generating device layouts for all rooms can perform this task for you.

To access this function, click on the first element of the profile structure (labeled with the name of the profile). In the main window you will find the section “Device layouts”, just below the section “Profile Information”. Here you can select options for which device classes and orientations the editor should automatically generate layouts (see screenshot).

Device layouts
When you change the device layout settings (i.e. by adding or removing layout options), the following effects apply:

  • The selected layouts will be added (as empty device layouts) to all newly created rooms.
  • The selected layouts will be added (as empty device layouts) to all existing rooms which do not already contain the respective layouts.
  • Existing layouts will not be overwritten.
  • When removing a layout option, all empty layouts which match that option will be removed from the profile; layouts which contain controls will not be removed.
