Manage projects

Sort projects

To change the sort order of projects, select a column heading. The first selection causes sorting on the values of the selected column, each further selection reverses the sorting order, from ascending to descending and vice versa.

Create a new Platform project

To create a Platform project based on your Studio project module:

  1. Select Publish to new Platform project on the project list toolbar.
  2. Type the project name under Name.
  3. Select the technology version under Tech Version.
  4. Select the project type from the Type of project drop-down menu.
  5. Type an optional description under Description
  6. Select Create.

You can see the operation progress:

  • Through the progress bar in the lower right corner of the Studio main window.

Or:

  • Under the Status column of the new project row.

Info

If your Studio project performs both extraction and categorization, you may need to create two Platform projects, a categorization project and an extraction project.

The new Platform project will contain:

  • In the case of a categorization project, the Studio project taxonomy and a generic library containing a "Welcome to Studio" sample document.
  • In the case of an extraction project, classes corresponding to Studio project templates and fields and a generic library containing a "Welcome to Studio" sample document.

A link between your Studio project module and a Platform project, represented by the chain icon under the Linked column, is automatically created when you create a new Platform project from your Studio project module.

  • To manually link a Platform project to your Studio project module, select the Platform project from the list, then select Link Module on the project list toolbar.
  • To delete an existing link between your Studio project module and a Platform project, select the linked Platform project from the list, then select Delete Platform Link on the project list toolbar.

Info

Linked projects that have been deleted in Platform continue to be listed, with an "open chain" icon under the Linked column, in the Platform Projects window until you delete the link. You can't delete a Platform project from Studio.

Filter projects

To filter projects according to their type, select the type from the Type drop-down menu on the project list toolbar. Possible choices are:

  • All to show all types of projects
  • Categorization to show only categorization projects, identified by the "C" icon under the Type column
  • Extraction to show only extraction projects, identified by the "E" icon under the Type column
