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.
