Using Drag and Drop to Define Materials

Once you define materials for a study (source study), you can use drag and drop (or copy and paste) to define materials for another study (target study).

To define materials:
  • Drag the Parts folder of an existing study (source study) and drop it on a compatible target Simulation study tab. All material assignments in the source Parts folders will be copied to the target study.
  • Drag one or more items in the Parts folder of a source study to a compatible target Simulation study tab. The material assignments for the selected items will be copied to the target study.
  • Use copy and paste to copy materials from one study to another.
