The information in this Wiki Page applies to both TANE and TRS19 and will show you how to create a Picklist in TRS19 or TANE (both programs use identical methods).

Both programs provide you with two different methods of creating Picklists, using either Content Manager (or Manage Content from the TANE/TRS19 Launcher) or in Surveyor.

Using Content Manager (CM)

NotePad.PNG Notes:
Only assets that are installed on your system can be added to a Picklist. They can be built-in, base, payware or installed from the DLS.

From the TRS19 or TANE Launcher
  1. select Manage Content
  2. (optional step) in Content Manager select a filter or create a custom filter to show the assets you want in the Picklist
  3. use the left mouse button and either the Ctrl or Shift key to click on each asset that is to be added to the Picklist
