Add Metadata

Add metadata to all types of entities. The added metadata can be saved to an *.hm file.

Restriction: Export of metadata to solver decks is currently not supported.
  1. Open the Add Metadata dialog in the following ways:
    • Right-click on an entity or entity folder in the Model Browser and select Add Metadata.

      Adding metadata by selecting a folder adds metadata to all the entities under the selected folder. Selecting a single entity or multiple entities of the same type adds metadata to the selected entities.

    • Right-click on the Metadata category in the Entity Editor and select Add.
