"Save as" function

I would appreciate a "save as" button where I can save different versions of a model. At the moment it seems (at least to me) only possible to export the existing version, rename it and to re-import it after having changed the original model. I hope I made myself clear.

Hi Steffen!

A "save as button" is not in compliance with our workspace concept.

But here is a "copy resource" function (right-mouse-click dialog) in the project window. Every project can have many models and many sets of data. Creating a model and, then, copying that resource within your current project might be the function you are looking for. That copy of your exisitng model appears as a another model in your project window an can be modified.

Hi Christian,

I have to confirm that I didn't notice this "copy resource" function. You are absolutely right, this issue was the one I was looking for. I agree, doing so is preferrable to a "save as button".

Thanks a lot,
