Edit 3ws in Notepad

Hi all,

Recently I found out that 3ws is a somehow "zipped" JSON file, so I can unzip it, open in Notepad++ and edit.

Maybe someone has already run across this?

I have to do 2 things:

  1. Group several layers, but not for the comparison mode. I need it to toggle visibiity quickly (e.g. swith off all layers for 2nd level of the building)
  2. Define the object's primary field/expression - first line in Identify pane. Now it's something unreadable like Buildings_Gen75Shape1516.

I would appreciate any help.

This is actually really interesting, I have never done this before. Can you share what the raw JSON looks like?
