Managing elements

You can right-click on any element to edit, rename, duplicate or delete an element. You can also use this menu to create new elements. To create a new element you can also double-click on the element type itself. You can also use the toolbar icons in the toolbar located right above the metadata tree.


When creating or editing metadata elements you will get the information presented in a separate tab on the right-hand side. This will allow you to easily switch between various metadata elements when working in a project.
