Make Linked Element a Local Copy

When you use an element on more than one diagram, you drag the element from the Browser window and drop it onto the diagram either as a link to the original element or as a separate instance or copy of the original element. Subsequently, you might decide to change a link to the element into a new object, as a local copy of the element in the same Package as the diagram. You can do this very quickly and simply by selecting a menu option.


Context Menu

On diagram, right-click element | Advanced | Convert Linked Element to Local Copy


  • 'Convert Linked Element to Local Copy' will only be available if the element being converted and the diagram it is on are in different Packages.
