Instructions: The task of the “Create/Update Block Icons…” function of the plant hierarchy (PH) is to incorporate the block icons of the measuring points and blocks configured in the PH automatically in the associated plant pictures. You then only have to move the block icons to the exact position required in the plant picture. Requirements for the automatic creation of the block icons: • The “Create/update block icons” function is available from PCS 7 V5.1 onwards. • The process pictures in which the block icons are to be created/updated must be created in the plant hierarchy (PH). • In the plant hierarchy you must select the picture property “Derive block icons from the plant hierarchy”. The “Create/Update Block Icons…” function can be executed in two different ways: • Menu command “Create/update block icons” In the “Plant View” of the SIMATIC Manager is the menu command “Options > Plant Hierarchy > Create/Update Block Icons…” for creating block icons. • Compile OS From PCS 7 V
