Import Model Elements

File menu > Import Model Elements

Use the Import Model Elements dialog box to bring elements of an existing model into the model you currently have open. Developers can work separately on different sections of a model, import sections into the destination model, and reuse model elements as often as needed.

For more information see...

NOTE: If you are importing a model that contains event handlers, they are imported along with their parent element, however, you must manually copy the Java code from the model source Scripts sub-directory to the corresponding sub-directory in the destination model.

Options that determine how to work with the Import Model Elements dialog box are set on Settings menu > Preferences > Import.


Import Model
Browse to the model you want to use as a source for the imported model elements. The source model displays in a tree view, containing the elements you want to import. The first time the Design Tool is opened, the models directory is not visible.
