Copy/Paste and Drag/Drop

Top  Previous  Next

ModelRight supports Copy/Paste and Drag/Drop within Model or between Models.   Also ModelRight supports these operations within or between the Diagram and the Model Explorer. Generally, if you have Ctrl pressed while you move a selection, it is considered a copy gesture.

These operations are used to support the following scenarios:

Action

Result

re-ordering - move an object within its parent object

change the order of the selected object within its parent object.  In the case of Columns, the order that is affected is whatever order is being displayed (Generation or Pk/Non-Pk). If displaying in Pk/non-Pk order, dragging a Column from the non-Pk part of a table to the Pk part will make add the Column to the Pk - an vice versa. For most other objects, the Generation order is affected.  Tables and Views can not be re-ordered since their order is determined dynamically based on their relations.
