With projects you can work on several separate developments within one Valispace deployment. If you only have one project nothing in Valispace changes and you don't have to use the projects. But if you are, for example, working on several different hardware projects or you want to have a seperate catalogue in which you save all components that are re-used between many projects, you can separate these inside Valispace.

Projects can be hidden and shown as you like, depending on what you are working on at the moment. Components, Analyses and Import/Exports belong to a project and Valis as well. To do calculations with Valis inside a project, they are accessed as usual with a dollar sign such as $component.vali

You can also access a Vali from a different project in the calculations by typing the project name followed by a double colon such as $project_name::component.vali

Components can easily be moved between projects by dragging and dropping them in the sidebar component tree.

Add a new project

You can add a new project by clicking 'New project' in the settings icon in the navigation bar.

A popup will show to let you type in a project name and then hit 'Ok' to add the new project.

Once you have added an additional project all your existing components will be placed in a default project called "project1". To rename the project, just right click on it in the sidebar tree and click rename.

Hide and show projects

To hide and show projects, click the folder icon in the top navigation bar and check the checkboxes for the projects that you currently want to see.
