Subject: Batch Load of Parts
The Demo version does not support batch Load or importing of pre defined files Excel, Database,...etc.Is this a feature in the complete version or must you type all your parts in by hand?

The initial release of PRISM does not contain an "import" function as such, however, this function will be incorporated in a subsequent update. Nevertheless the component data entry task is greatly reduced by two existing features within PRISM. These are the "Component Library" and the "Copy" function.
As frequently used components are added to the PRISM component library, they need not be reentered the next time they are used. This unfortunately, is not obvious in the PRISM demo version because the "Add to Library" function is intentionally disabled in the demo. The "Copy" function also eliminates the need to reenter recurring input data.
It should also be noted that while an "Import" function is not included in the initial release of the PRISM an "Export" function is included.
