Import XML Model

File menu > Import XML Model > Import

You can use the XML model file export and import feature to programmatically manipulate a model file outside the Design Tool. You can modify global and repetitive changes, plus generate entire models based on an existing external description of the host application. After you make changes, the XML file can be imported back into the Design Tool and opened as a .model file.
