Copy a Base Project

When you create a new project, you can use the Model Wizard (Start Page 'Create from Pattern' tab) to define the structure and contents. Alternatively, you can copy an existing template or base project which is already largely set up, containing company standards, tutorials, frameworks and any other common modeling structures. You can also copy an operational QEA, .QEAX, .FEAP, .EAP or .EAPX project file to a new file location under a new name to, for example:

  • Provide separate copies for individual team members
  • Create an evaluation or distribution version of the project

Access

Either:

  • In your file browser, right-click on the template project file or existing operational project file and select the 'Copy' and then 'Paste' menu options, or
  • Use the Project Transfer facility to transfer the contents of the base, or source, project into a shell target project

In the first method you create a duplicate of the source project, with the same GUIDs. In the second method you have the option of not changing the GUIDs, or deleting and replacing all GUIDs in the new project so that the target model structures are unique and separate from the source structures.
