On the File menu, click Import to open the Import dialog box. The XML model file export and import feature enables you to programmatically manipulate a model file outside the context of the Design Tool. Once the model file is exported as an XML file, modifications such as global and repetitive changes can be made to this file. This features also enables you to generate entire models based on an existing external description of the host application. Once changes are made, the XML file can be imported back into the Design Tool and opened as a .model file.

To import the XML-based documentation about your custom model or one of the sample models provided with the Design Tool, type the file name in the File box. By default, the XML file will be saved in the \<VHI install directory>\models\<model name> folder. You can also click Browse to save the XML- or HTML-based documentation in a different location. Click OK to commit your changes or click Cancel to close this dialog box.
