CADWorx Spec Editor Home tab: Transfer Data > Support Data

Copies data from one pipe support libraries file to another pipe support libraries file. For example, the source pipe support data copies to the target pipe support data.

Source

Specifies the source file for the pipe support libraries file transfer.

Target

Specifies the target file for the pipe support libraries file transfer.

You can select a project as the source, but you can only transfer the pipe support libraries data from the project to the pipe support libraries file. To transfer data from a project and pipe support libraries file to a separate project (.prj), you must use the Project Data option.

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

    Data transfers for projects, catalogs, and pipe supports can be conducted while working in a catalog, a project, or a pipe support library.

    The Would you like to use the current pipe support libraries for target? dialog box displays.

    This only displays when you have a pipe support libraries file open.

  2. Click Yes to use the current pipe support libraries file.

    OR

    Click No to use a different pipe support libraries file.

    The Transfer Project Data dialog box displays.

  3. Click Open Pipe Support Libraries next to the small Source box.

    The Open dialog box displays.

  4. Select a pipe support libraries file to copy data from, and then click Open.

    OR

    Select the file type list next to File Name, select Project File (*.prj), select a project, 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. Click New Pipe Support Libraries to create and transfer to a new pipe support libraries file.

    The New Pipe Support Libraries dialog box displays.

    Complete using the information in New Pipe Support Libraries.

    OR

    Click Open Pipe Support Libraries next to the small Target box, to transfer to an existing pipe support libraries file.

    The Open dialog box displays.

    Select the target pipe support libraries file, and then click Open.

    The data displays in the small and large Target boxes.

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

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

  7. Click Save to save the changes.

  8. Click Close when finished.
