Settings Menu > Preferences > Import
The following options are available on the Import tab of the Preferences Setup dialog box and are selected by default:
When an element is selected in the left tree pane, all of the dependencies or references from that element to others are selected to be imported into the destination model.
For example: If you select attribute A in the left pane that refers to a variable V at the bottom of that pane, this preference makes sure variable V is also checked automatically. If Automatically select referenced elements is not selected, variable
V_notImported will be created after import, unless you manually select V. All references need to be resolved, either manually or automatically.
When an element is selected in the left tree pane all the children of the element are automatically selected to be imported into the destination model.
After importing the model, the model is validated and the results are displayed. It is important to validate your model and resolve any discrepancies that might have occurred during the import. There is a Validate option available on import dialog box.
See the Validator help topic for more information on interpreting the results of the validation.
When you select an element that is already in the destination model the element is replaced. Select this option to confirm your decision before the element is overwritten. You can choose to stop displaying the confirmation message on the dialog box.
