This command activating editing of sign.

The next step will depend on the type of sign you selected.

Variable standard signs 

All variable standard signs using the same user interface.

As an example, we using the Norwegian sign “312.0 – Breddegrense”.

The following dialogue will be displayed on insert or edit:

Enter the desired value in the Enter value field and press the tab key to update the sign.

Note:  Incorrect values will be notified as an error message and the user must then give value again.

Use Insert to insert the sign to the drawing. 

Directional signs

Nearly all directional signs using the same user interface.

In edit mode the programs display a preview image of the sign selected in the main dialogue, which is modified towards the final result. As an example, we using the Norwegian sign “711 – Tabellvegviser”. The two most central concepts of the edit mode are "Edit Plate" and "Plate".

"Edit Plate" means any content inside a sign plate. The content can contain road numbers, mini symbols, service symbols, text and numbers. Objects can be added, objects can be modified, objects can be changed. The functionality are located at the top of the edit dialogue.

 "Plate" means the whole sign or the internal parts of the sign. A sign can contain several plates. So a plate is a main level management concept, while a row only affects a certain part within the sign.

"Edit Plate" functions offer different functions depending on the object selected for editing/adding. By clicking on the road number and pressing "Add row", road numbers can be added row by row inside the direction. In the example, if "Color field" is selected and then "Add row" is pressed, the program opens the color field addition and editing window.

The edit window and functions are basically the same for all editable signs. Some signs have differing user interfaces with all building on the same principle.

Modifying objects is always based on one object selected by the user, for example a road number. A small yellow circle appears in the upper left corner of the selected object as a sign of selection. The selected object can be edited or deleted. When adding new objects, they are normally placed after the selected object. Since nothing can be added to the empty space, it is sometimes necessary to do the so-called temporary object, identifier or road number, after which the objects required are created. After that, the temporary object can be deleted

Tips:  Ctrl + right mouse button. All "road sign objects" can be accessed by pressing the Ctrl key and using the right mouse button on the desired object. Further action will depend on the type of road sign object involved – see example below:
