Copying items to a different model
You can copy any items on the canvas (blocks, groups, and attached wires) and paste them in a different model. The prerequisite for this is that all is done in the same session. It will not work if you try to paste the items in a different tab or in a different browser.
There may be performance issues if you copy many input blocks and output blocks. This is because this operation requires access to the inventory service of Cumulocity IoT to get the information about the devices that are represented by these blocks.
*To copy items to a different model
1. On the canvas of the model editor, select all items that you want to copy and press Ctrl+C.
This also works if the model is currently in read-only mode.
2. Leave the model editor. See also Leaving the model editor.
3. In the model manager, switch to the model into which you want to paste the copied items. This can be an existing model (see also Editing an existing model) or a new model that you first have to create (see also Adding a new model).
4. When the model editor is shown, press Ctrl+V to paste the copied items into the model.
