||If you select a device that has an accessory kit
associated with it, the software will list each part number in the accessory
kit here. You can enter a tag prefix for each part number in the kit should you

text indicating it's locked. The refresh will clear any labels that no longer
exist on the currently active drawing so that new text can be entered.
