To specify the current model

  1. Open the Development Workspace. See How to: Open a Development Workspace for more information.

  2. Choose Tools > Model management > Change current model.

  3. From the models in the current layer, select the model that you want to be the current model. Any changes you make to AOT resources will be stored in this model.

  4. Click OK. The display name of the current model is displayed in the status bar in the Development Workspace.

Tip Tip

In the status bar of the Development Workspace, you can click the display name of the current model to open the window that you use to specify the current model.
