Use the options under the Edit menu to manage scenarios, dependencies and results in the Library Explorer scenario tree, and state classes with associated transitions in pathway diagrams of the Scenario Editor.

When the active window is the Library Explorer, the available options under the Edit menu will apply to scenarios, dependencies and results. When the active window is the pathway diagrams of the Scenario Editor, the available options under the Edit menu will apply to state classes and associated transitions.

Below is a description of each of the Edit submenus.


Cut

When the Library Explorer is the active window: use the Edit|Cut option to move scenarios from one folder to another within the same project, or from one open project to another. Left-click to select the scenario(s) you wish to copy (Ctrl-Click to select multiple scenarios).

When the pathway diagrams are active: Edit|Cut removes the selected state class(es) and associated transitions from the current pathway diagram to a clipboard, ready for pasting into other pathway diagrams as needed (Ctrl-Click to select multiple state classes). Use this option to move a state class and its transitions from one pathway diagram to another.


Copy

When the Library Explorer is the active window and a scenario is selected: select Edit|Copy to create a copy of existing scenarios and put them on the clipboard ready for pasting into the active project. Left-click to select the item(s) you wish to copy (Ctrl-Click to select multiple scenarios or results).

When the Library Explorer is the active window and a project is selected: select Edit|Copy to create a copy of existing project and put it on the clipboard ready for pasting into the active library. Left-click to select the item you wish to copy. This function will only copy the project definitions. Pasting after copy will create a new project with no scenarios and an exact copy of the selected project definitions.

When the pathway diagrams are active: Edit|Copy copies the selected state class(es) and associated transitions from the active pathway diagram to the clipboard, ready for pasting into the same or other pathway diagrams (Ctrl-Click to select multiple state classes).

Paste

When you have copied scenarios, results or state classes and transitions to the clipboard, select Edit|Paste to paste them into the active window.


Paste Special

The Edit | Paste Special option is available only when editing the pathway diagrams. It is similar to the Edit|Paste option, except that it provides options for which transitions to include when pasting.


Paste and Merge Dependencies

The Edit|Paste and Merge Dependencies is available only with the Library Explorer when one or more of the scenarios on the clipboard has dependencies. It is similar the Edit|Paste option, except that any properties that are defined using dependencies for the clipboard scenario(s) are merged together when they are pasted out of the clipboard. You can use this option to paste single or multiple scenarios with dependencies (Ctrl-Click to select multiple scenarios).


Select All

Use the Edit|Select All option to select all scenarios (except for dependencies and results) in the Library Explorer, or all state classes and associated transitions for a pathway diagram when editing the pathway diagrams.


Delete

When the Library Explorer is the active window: select Edit|Delete to remove selected scenarios (including any associated results) from the scenario tree.

When the pathway diagrams are active:: select Edit|Delete to remove selected state classes and associated transitions from the active pathway diagram.

Delete All

When a scenario or project datasheet is active:: select Edit|Delete All to remove all the records in the datasheet.

Delete Results

When a scenario with results is active:: select Edit|Delete Results to remove all of its results.

Rename

Select Edit|Rename to change the name of the selected scenarios in the Library Explorer.

Import

When the Library Explorer is the active window: select Edit|Import to import an entire scenario with all of its assciated datasheets from an excel file. To view the required format for the excel file. Use the Export menu for an existing scenario.

When a scenario datasheet is the active window: select Edit|Import to import records into that datasheet from an excel or csv file. To view the required format use the Export menu.

Export

When the Library Explorer is the active window: select Edit|Export to export an entire scenario with all of its assciated datasheets to an excel file. The file can then be modified and re-imported into a new scenario.

When a scenario datasheet is the active window: select Edit|Export to export the datasheet records to an excel or csv file. Records can then be edited and re-imported to the same or a new scenario.
