CADWorx Spec Editor Home tab: Transfer Data > Project Data

Copies data from one project containing pipe support libraries or a separate pipe support libraries file to another project. For example, the source project data copies to the target project data.

Source

Specifies the source file for the project and pipe support data transfer.

Target

Specifies the target file for the project transfer.

You cannot select a pipe support libraries file as the target when using the Project Data option. To transfer data from a pipe support libraries file to a separate pipe support libraries file (.psl) you must use the Support Data option.

  1. Click the Home tab, and then click Project Data in the Transfer Data panel.

    You can conduct data transfers for projects, catalogs, and pipe supports while working in a catalog, a project, or a pipe support library.

    The Would you like to use the current project for target? dialog box displays.

    This only displays when you have a project open.

  2. Click Yes to use the current project.

    OR

    Click No to use a different project.

    The Transfer Project Data dialog box displays.

  3. Click Open next to the small Source box.

    The Open dialog box displays.

  4. Select a project to copy data from, and then click Open.

    OR

    Select the file type list next to File Name, select Pipe Support Libraries File (*.psl), select a pipe support libraries file, and then click Open.

    You can transfer pipe support data from a project or a pipe support libraries file during the same transfer data session.

    The data displays in the large and small Source boxes.

  5. Select New to create and transfer to a new project.

    The New Project dialog box displays.

    Complete using the information in New Project.

    OR

    Select Open next to the small Target box, to transfer to an existing project.

    The Open dialog box displays.

    Select the target project, and then click Open.

    The data displays in the small and large Target boxes.

  6. Click and drag the specification and pipe support data from the Source box to the Target box.

    You can copy data from the loaded source project to the loaded target project by drag and drop. You can also right-click the source, select Copy, and then Paste to the target. You can delete target project data by selecting the applicable component with right-click, and then clicking Delete.

  7. Click Save to save the changes.

  8. Click Close when finished.

    The CADWorx Spec Editor dialog box displays, telling you the project has been modified outside the application, and asking if you would like to reload it.

  9. Click OK to load

    OR

    Click Cancel to exit.

    The CADWorx Spec Editor dialog box displays when you click OK, asking if you would like to load from the base catalog.

  10. Click Yes to load base catalog.

    OR

    Click No to not load the base catalog.

    The project reloads with the changes.

  11. Click File > Save to save the changes to the project.
