Choose the Edit Text Control Description command in the Course Setting menu to edit the text control description. The Edit Text Control Description dialog appears:


You can write to each control a user defined text in the orange colored column. To copy the automatic text to the user defined text column use the corresponding button at the bottom of the dialog. Only the text in the User defined text column will appear in the text control description. The automatic text is generated according to the symbol names. To rename a symbol click the corresponding symbol with the right mouse button in the symbol box and choose the Edit command in the context menu. Enter a new name in the Symbol description field of the dialog.

Hint.jpg Note that when you use the Copy automatic text to user defined text column button, all user defined text gets overwritten with the automatic text. Make sure to copy the automatic text to the user defined column before you edit the text by hand.
Hint.jpg Instead of defining the Control Description Symbols for each Control by yourself, use the Auto Control Description

Click the OK button when finished.

To add a text control description to your course choose the Cdsymbol.gif Control Description symbol and place it on the map. Enter a code in the Course Object dialog and click the OK button. The upper right corner of the control description is indicated with a hook. In the Course Object Box on the right side of the window you have the option to change the Control description type from symbol to text.

The text symbol description can also be edited in the Course Object Box. Visit the Edit Course Setting Objects page for more information.
