When we import our tag database from Studio 5000 to EasyBuilder Pro, the tag descriptions are not being carried over. Example in pictures:

Tags in a user data type with descriptions:

Tags in EasyBuilder Pro, descriptions not carried over:

Your tag descriptions are written within the UDT menu, so only Studio 5000 IDE can display those tag descriptions within the Local Tag or Program Tags (Shown in gray color).

EasyBuilder Pro only imports tag descriptions which come along with “atomic” tags (pure Bool, INT, DINT, etc). The reason that EasyBuilder Pro does it in this way is that importing too many tag descriptions will take the import process much longer, especially importing tags from a big Studio5000 project. During HMI programming you can still open your Studio5000 project to look at the UDT descriptions.
