The spare parts bin

Each study contains a spare parts bin. The spare parts bin is home to all the constructs you do NOT want included in your running study. You can place things here that you don't necessarily want to delete. You can also create new constructs and edit them right in the spare parts bin.

Adding a construct

You can add constructs to the spare parts bin by clicking on New item or by dragging a compatible construct from somewhere in the study tree into the spare parts bin. When creating a new construct, you can choose to start with a blank slate or to copy an existing construct from the study.

Removing a construct

Constructs can be removed from the spare parts bin by dragging them to somewhere else in the study tree, or by selecting the construct using the checkbox and clicking Delete in the toolbar above the spare parts bin table. You can also select and delete multiple constructs at once.

WARNING: All sub-constructs of the selected constructs will also be removed. If you wish keep any sub-constructs, you can drag them to another part of the study tree. Alternatively, you can drag any construct to the Spare parts bin to remove it (and its sub-constructs) from the study without permanently deleting it.

Navigate to a construct

You can navigate to any of the constructs in the table by clicking on its row or by clicking on the construct in the study tree.

Reordering constructs

The order of constructs can be changed by dragging and dropping within the table in the view panel, or by dragging and dropping within the study tree.
