After the initial upload of the data library to your program, you can update it as often as required. You'll need to update the data library when any of the following occur:

1.

You need to add a new data element.

2.

You need to remove an existing data element.
A data element can only be removed if it is not being used in a scene. You'll need to remove the data element from the scene before you can remove it from the data library. You can refer to the data library to see in what scenes the specific data element is being used in.
