Create a new objecttype

to complete our models I need some new object types, derived from an existing object type.

Inside the ARIS administration / configuration / method / object types I find all the existing object types. I can edit the object types and give them a new name. But in this case I have the "old" object type with the new name. But I need the new object types as wall as the old, the new ones with the same characteristics. Or just the three object types independent from others.

In the content menu (right mouse click) I can choose "edit", "copy" or "rename". But after "copy" (or Strg+C) there is no paste and Strg+V does not work.

So I would be very happy if someone can help me.

Many thanks in advance.

ARIS does not offer to create new object types, sorry. You can create new symbol types based on existing ones, but not new object types.

OK, thanks.

But I wonder why I can choose the copy-function in the content menu.

Yes, but that is only because you can copy the selected table cell or lines to the clipboard...
