How do I change the currency symbol seen in places like Energy Cost, Energy Management and unit cost of pipes in Darwin Designer? For example from the dollar sign to the Euro sign.

You may have a requirement to change the currency of pipe unit cost in Darwin Designer or of energy cost while performing energy cost analysis, as per currencies of your country.


The currency symbol is controlled by the Windows language and regional options. If you change the currency symbol there, then restart the Bentley application, you should see the updated currency symbol.

This would change the currency in the software wherever it is mentioned; you can change it later back to the dollar symbol if required, in the same way.

The exact method to change this will depend on your version of Windows.
