5.92 copy paste : properties


When a component from file 1 is copied to file 2, a window opens asking if its properties should be copied with the component. This corresponds to the different properties and properties that are assigned to this component

a. If the "Copy Properties" checkbox is not checked, no properties or propertysets will be copied.



b. If the checkbox is checked, several available options are displayed.



Note: If none of the 4 options is checked, checking "Copy properties" is the same as the case above (a) it only displays the 4 available options.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The following explanations detail the actions involved in checking or unchecking an option. They are in chronological order according to the order in which the options are displayed.
In reality, depending on his needs, the user will check these options according to his own needs, these options being independent of each other.

0. no option checked


In this case, only the component geometry is copied from file 1 to file 2.

1. copy additional properties



In this case, all properties defined in file 1 and not present in file 2 will be added to the latter.
Example below:



If file 2 is empty, the properties Pp_1 and the value A of file 1 will be copied into file 2.

2. copy the additional values to the properties



All the new values (addtionals) defined in the properties of file 1 will be copied to file 2.

Example below



In the continuity of the previous example, the sum values B and C of the properties Pp_1 will be copied in the file 2
Similarly, the new property Pp_2 will also be copied, as well as all its values, if they have been previously defined

3. copy additional propertysets



In this case, all the propertysets defined in file 1 that do not exist in file 2 will be added in file 2.

Example below



In this case, the propertyset Ps_1 and its 2 properties Pp_1 and Pp_2, as well as all the values of the properties will be copied in the file 2

4. copy the additional properties into the propertiesets



In this case, all the new properties defined in propertysets defined in file 1 and non-existent in file 2 will be added in file 2.
