I note this from the "Whats New in Comfigurator 3.7.6" post
Security Types > Alarm Types
The Alarm Types that are referenced ie in Blue should have the Names fixed ie not editable. This is because the name reflects the alarm which should not be changed. Unreferenced alarm types (shown in black) can still have their names changed
I've possibly been a naughty boy and already changed the name of Alarm 18 - CMSTest - as I've repurposed it for something else (used for reporting low light from a photocell, also forming a daily message confidence test).
Now I've upgraded to 3.7.6, I'm stuck with my new (but temporary) name, and can't edit it. Is there anyway to override the Alarm Type name for these now 'fixed' types?
Or is it just a case of slapped wrists for being a naughty boy and changing it in the first place!
I changed the names of several alarm types to use them for my own purposes. Not the obvious ones - intruder, etc. This enabled me to send meaningful text/SMS messages concerning my own type of alarms. Water alarms, medical alarms, etc.
Now I see I cannot edit many of the names at all.
This ability to edit the name seems to be based on the property of the alarm type: if its referenced anywhere in the file, it cannot be edited.
Can this be reversed?
