Tree import settings
Editing a chart
When you import a tree from a Legacy database, each new text element stores a link to the database/table/record/field(s) which were used to create it. When you use the Update text or Auto-update text functions, TreeDraw uses the link attributes stored which each text element to update the text. You can also use this command to set up a database link for text which was not imported but added manually.
