Copying workspaces from another ACL project

You can copy a workspace from one ACL project to another, which allows you to reuse the physical or computed field definitions, or the filters, the workspace contains rather than creating them from scratch. In addition to saving labor, reusing any of these items, or sharing them with other ACL users, ensures consistency. You can copy a single workspace, or multiple workspaces simultaneously.

If you want to import a workspace that exists as a separate file outside an ACL project, see Importing workspaces.

To copy a workspace from another ACL project:

  1. Open the project that will contain the copied workspace or workspaces.
  2. In the Overview tab of the Navigator, right-click the ACL project entry, or a project folder, and select Copy from another Project > Workspace.

    The ACL project is the top-level folder in the treeview.

  3. In the Locate Project File dialog box, locate and select the ACL project you want to copy the workspace or workspaces from and click Open.
  4. In the Import dialog box, complete any of the following tasks to add one or more workspaces to the To project_name list:
    • Double-click a workspace.

    • Ctrl+click multiple workspaces and then click the right-arrow button.

    • Click Add All to add all the workspaces.

    You can remove workspaces from the To project_name list by double-clicking an individual workspace, by using Ctrl+click to select multiple workspaces and then clicking the left-arrow button, or by clicking Clear All.

  5. Click OK to copy the workspace or workspaces into the destination project.

    If a workspace with the same name already exists in the project, the copied workspace is given an incrementing numeric suffix.
