The fastest way to reuse/copy parts of your current workspace or to apply an existing analysis sequence to some existing window is to use the Drag 'n Drop functions in the Control Window. Below are some usage examples:


Reusing or moving part of analysis


By dragging an analysis window icon to some other target window icon in the Control Window, the complete analysis tree, starting from the dragged window icon, will be copied, and applied to the target window. If the Ctrl key is pressed, the analysis tree will be moved, otherwise it will be copied. The cursor shown during dragging will indicate the current mode by displaying "COPY" or "MOVE" text next to the graphics.


Here is a simple example. The starting point would be this workspace:

We perform a drag operation of the FFT window to the new Signal2:

And the result is that the copy of the analysis is applied to the Signal2:

The current drag context can be recognised on the cursor mouse’s cursor shape:


graphic  Currently dragged window and its subtree will be copied - there is no specific target to apply it to. This is only applicable to root windows (without parent).

graphic Currently dragged window and its subtree will be moved - there is no specific target to apply it to. This is only applicable to root windows (without parent).


graphicCurrently dragged window and its subtree will be moved and applied to the window icon currently under the mouse cursor.



Duplicating existing analysis parts


By dragging the icon of the root window (window without parents) to the empty space in the Control Window, the copy of that window and its analysis subtree will be created.
