  1. Click Select on the vertical toolbar.

  2. In the Locate Filter, select Molded Forms (Root Level).

  3. Select one or more root plate systems to move.

    The plate system ribbon displays.

    • Select only the root plate system to move. The root plate system is not moved if any of its children in the hierarchy are also selected.

    • If you are selecting more than one root plate system, use CTRL+click to select only the root systems.

  4. In the Select Parent box, select a new system. If the needed system is not available, click More to open the Select System dialog box.

    If an invalid system, such as another root plate system, is selected, an error message displays and the plate system is not moved.

  5. Click Finish.

    The root plate system and its children move to the new system in the Workspace Explorer.

  • Children of a root plate system (such as leaf plate systems and parts, profile systems and parts, openings, seams, and connections) always move with the root plate system.

  • Children cannot be selected and moved out of the root plate system hierarchy.

  • Valid systems are created in the Systems and Specifications task, or with the New System command. For more information see the Systems and Specifications User's Guide, or New System in the Common User's Guide.

  • Root plate systems can also be moved in the Common task. The workflow and restrictions are similar, except that the system moves after making a selection in the Select Parent box because Finish is not available in the Common task.
