I was looking for a way to be able to display multiple faceplates.
Operators can open up 4 faceplates right now, but when they try and open a 5th, it closes the previous faceplate.
Is there a way to increase this value from 4, to 8?
So operators can open up a total of 8 faceplates at one time>?

Learning something here. I ran the update but found very few modules were replicated to have 5 instances. ( two actually). Although it took a while, what I've determined is that the utility checks date times on files and does not update the Temp folder if the Files align, and therefore there is no change. To get the files to update, Open each file and make a minor change. I moved an item up and than back down and saved. Then the file was updated in the Temp folder and additional files were added. It takes 3 to 4 seconds to add each file, so about 20 seconds per updated faceplate for 5 copies.
I'm also not sure what would happen if you went beyond 9 for number of copies. that would end up with 2 digits in the name. Will the runtime Popup function be able to extract a value of "10" or would it see just the "0". It all depends on how the function was structured. It if only extracts the last digit, there could be a limit of 9 copies, or even introduce errors with 10 or more copies. Please be careful and test thoroughly as you add copies.
