Moving a project to another model

If you have:
  • more than one model in your layer
  • the elements in project can belong to more that one model in the same layer
Then do not move the project directly. Moving a project to another Model will also move all elements that project contains.
Method 1:
Create a new Project in the desired Model and then Drag the elements from the original project into this new one.
Method 2:

Please be aware that client in most cases will not show actual model on a project just after successful run. In that case AOS restart is required.
