Issue Details


I created a *.seq file and have many instances of customer steps and data types, which I want to 
modify all at once rather than one at a time.

If you need to modify all instances of a custom data type:

1. Open the *.seq file with the data types you want to modify
2. Open the types palette



3. Find the custom data type in MyTypes.ini.
4. Right click the property of the custom data type which you want to modify and select properties from the content menu that appears.



5. Modify the value entry.



6. Check the Apply Value to All Loaded Instances of the Type box
7. Click OK
