Feature

 

Cloning Items within a Project allow you to "duplicate" multiple Items at a time. This is different than the Clone feature within the Catalog.

What are the benefits of this feature?

 

You can quickly "clone" all or some of the Items in a Location and/or System to another Location/System.

Details

 

Select the Items you wish to clone and then click the [Clone] button on the ribbon of the Home tab:

 

 

You can also access this via the right-click menu for selected Items:

 

 

The Clone Items for will open:

Here you will enter the additional quantity of the Item(s) that you want to add to the Project. So if you already have 2 of an Item in the Project and you want a total of 5, you would enter 3 in the Quantity field.

 

Keep cloned items in same location

Default = Checked. This option will assign the cloned Items to the same Location that the Item being cloned is assigned. If you uncheck this, you can clone to multiple Locations at a time.

 

Keep cloned items in same system

Default = Checked. This option will assign the cloned Items to the same System that the Item being cloned is assigned. If you uncheck this, all Items will be assigned to the new System that you select.

 

Clone as parent items (if parent items are not part of the selection)

If you select an Accessory, an Alternate, or an Item within a Package, the Item will be cloned as a parent item, i.e. a "stand alone" item.

 

Clone within existing package or parent item

If you select an Accessory, an Alternate, or an Item within a Package, the item will be cloned will remain associated with the existing Package or parent item.

 

Clone complete package or parent item

If you select an Accessory, an Alternate, or an Item within a Package, this option will clone the entire Package or parent item with all other Accessories or Alternates.

Cloning via the Drop Zone

 

You can also clone via the Add section of the Drop Zone within a Project.

 

 

The Assign section of Drop Zone allows you to select multiple Locations and one System. You can drag multiple Items from your Project Grid to the Add section and they will be cloned into the selected Location(s) and System.

 

Select the Location(s) and System in the Drop Zone. Then select the Items you want to Clone and drag them to the Add section of the Drop Zone:
