The program supports part names for faces and cells:

 >  7.0 RECORDS=No I*12 UNITS=No BYTE/UNIT=12 FACELIMITNameStatus

>  7.0 RECORDS=7 I*12 UNITS=384 BYTE/UNIT=12 CELLLIMITNameStatus

Name can be any part name. Status determines wether the family is active (1) or not (0). The interface automatically sets every status to 0 (inactive). The user needs to activate them in Fire.
