Step 4:

After loading the project hit next on the bottom right corner, here you will be able to set the keywards that the ETS wizard will use to pair the group addresses in order to create a single component in the EVE project with both group addresses already paired together. If this step is not set once the EVE project is created there will be two separate components, one with the write address and the other with the feedback. We suggest to choose keyword such as: Cmd for the comand address and Fb for the feedback one. This keywords will be checked on each of the name of the group addresses. This option can be toggled by checking or unchecking the check box “Enable feedback recognition based on text“.
