Copying Objects as an Image

Copying Objects as an Image

In the Designer workspace, you can copy an image of objects such as mappings or transformations to the Clipboard. You can then paste the image file into the workspace of any application that uses graphics.
To copy objects in the Designer workspace as an image:
  1. In the Designer, open the tool associated with the object you want to copy.
    For example, open the Mapping Designer if you want to copy a mapping as an image.
  2. Open the object you want to copy.
    If you choose to show iconized mappings, the copied image does not show mapping links. You can copy the mapping links by selecting them manually.
  3. Drag the pointer to create a rectangle around the objects you want to select.
    You can also Ctrl-click to select individual objects. However, if you use this method to select objects, the copied image does not show mapping links.
  4. Press Shift+Alt+C or click Edit > Copy As Image.
    You can copy one image to the Clipboard at a time.
  5. Paste the image into the workspace of any application that uses graphic files.
    For example, you can paste the image into a Microsoft Word document.
