Short Naming Material

As a User, I would like to have the ability to create a material short name in order to consolidate joist labels across jobs for larger multi-family projects or builders with similar floor plans across the nation.

User would have the ability to change the tags in the modifiers tab for this "Short Naming" option.

EX. 11_7/8 BCI 4500 = 12B4

    This can currently be done, although it will be a manual process for the first time (then file saveas).

    In the Profile\Labeling menu, you can modify the properties for an individual Product Family. Only the specific changes made will over-ride the parent setting.

    (In the example image below: if BCI = green then 11-7/8" BCI 4500s = green unless specifically changed.)
