Drag 'n Drop functions
  

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 Drag 'n Drop functions in the Control Window. Here 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 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.

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

We perform 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 recognized on the cursor mouse cursor shape:

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

graphic Currently dragged window and its subtree will be copied and applied to the window icon currently under mouse cursor.

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

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