What is a collection?

An element collection is a database where all element files are storaged and classified. The element collection gives the information about the element name, category (folder); sub-categories (sub-folders) and category or sub-category path in the file system.

QElectroTech has two different element collections integrated, QET collection and User collection.

QElectroTech displays also a third collection in the collections panel when a project is opened, the project collection. This collection is not part from the software structure and it is treated automatically by QElectroTech during the draw proces in the workspace.
