Options
The options menu has two items: Enable All LogixNGs and Disable All LogixNGs. Selecting one of these will perform the action on all the LogixNGs in the table.
Tools
The tools menu has one item: Open PickList Tables. The PickList was designed for dragging names, such as sensor names, to a text field. Due to the implementation of ConditionalNG edit dialogs, the drag and drop capability does not function. It can still be used as a reference.

Add a LogixNG

To create a new LogixNG, click on the Add... button. The Add LogixNG window will be displayed.

Add LogixNG

The system name is required. The system name for a LogixNG always begins with the letters IQ. If the entered name does not start with IQ, it will be automatically added. The typical suffix is a number. If Automatically generate System Name is checked, the system name format will be IQ:AUTO:nnnn. Any other format requires adding a $ (dollar) character between IQ and the suffix.

The user name is optional but recommended. A user name may be any useful text, provided the new user name was not previously assigned to another LogixNG. Once a LogixNG is created, its system name cannot be changed. Its user name may be changed in either the LogixNG Table or the Edit LogixNG window. The user name is usually used to provide a more descriptive name, for example, "Signal 5 Control".

After clicking Create, the LogixNG will be created and the Edit LogixNG window will appear.
