OpenUtilities Substation Help

Copy Actor

Used to copy one actor to another actor. If you copy an actor that has other actors attached to it, when you copy the top actor, all the sub actors are also copied.

When working with this tool, you can select the actors graphically, or you can double-click their names from the drop-down Actor List menu in the tool settings.

You can access this tool from the following:

  • Ribbon: Visualization > Animate > Modify Actor
  • Toolbox: Animation Actors

Name Displays the name of the selected actor.
Note: Each actor must have a unique name. If you do not give the actor a new name, it is numerically incremented (such as Actor1).
Actor List Drop-down menu containing the names of existing actors in the model. See Working with Actors for information on manipulating actors.
