On top of that, PDF that contains details of given configuration are automatically attached in Other Documents drawing type.

From/To wire numbering


A new way wire numbering method has been added. If Wire numbering has been selected as wiring method, it is possible to select From/To numbering method which generates wire numbers based on devices and connections connected at the end of each wire (e.g.: =F1+L1-P1:1/+L2-Q1:2).


Licensing procedure overhaul

Launch of IGE+XAO’s new offer was a great opportunity to completely overhaul the way users interact with the software for the first time and license the software. Due to that, all license related activities have been removed from the software and added to the new SEE Electrical Configuration tool which is part of SEE Electrical’s installation package.


To access this new tool, users can either find appropriate Configuration of SEE Electrical V8R4 shortcut in the Start menu or click on License my software button located in About SEE Electrical dialog (accessible through i icon in the top right corner of the main SEE Electrical window).

Moreover, trial users will be notified about remaining evaluation time each time they open SEE Electrical. It will also be possible to access SEE Electrical Configuration tool from that dialog.


Detailed instructions on how to license SEE Electrical now can be found in Installation Guide and License with… manuals.
