Creating Shortcuts

Creating Shortcuts

To create a shortcut to an object in a shared folder, drag the object into the destination folder or into the mapping. For example, to create a shortcut to a source, drag the source from the shared folder into the mapping you have open in the workspace. You can also create a shortcut by dropping the source into the destination folder. To use the new shortcut, drag it into the workspace.
You can create a shortcut to a shared folder in the same repository. You can also create a shortcut in a local repository that points to a shared folder in the global repository, as long as both repositories are in the same domain.
As with copying objects, the destination folder must be open.
You cannot create shortcuts to objects in non-shared folders.
