Manage Locations

Locations are managed using the contents panel on the upper right-hand side of the main VGS window. Before adding or editing locations, you must click on the "Edit schema" button in the toolbar (See Main Toolbar). This step is required to avoid accidental editing during normal use of the software. Clicking the "Edit schema" button displays the Edit Toolbar:

Save All Schema Edits

Saves all pending changes and exits edit mode.

Add Location

To create a new site, go in either the folders panel or the contents panel, and:

  1. Select the parent folder where the new location is to be added by clicking on it. Then click the "New Location" button on the toolbar.
  2. Select the parent folder where the new location is to be added by clicking on it, then in the contents panel right-click on the empty space and choose "New Location" from the drop-down menu.

Edit Location Name

To edit location names:

  1. Right-click on the location and choose "Rename" from the drop-down menu.
  2. Select the site to be changed by clicking on it, pause (so next click is not interpreted as a double-click) and then click the folder again.

Copy Location Reference

To copy a location reference (remember, you are copying references to the location - not creating a duplicate location), copy and paste the location using any combination of the following:

  1. Right-click on the intended location and choose "Copy" from the drop-down menu, or select the location to be copied by clicking on it and then click on the "Copy" button in the toolbar.
  2. Right-click on the target folder and choose "Paste" from the drop-down menu, or select the target folder (either in the folders panel or the contents panel) by clicking on it and then click the "Paste" button in the toolbar, or after selecting the target folder in the folders panel, either right-click in the blank space below items in the contents panel and choose "Paste" from the drop-down menu or click in the blank space below items in the contents panel and click on the "Paste" button in the toolbar.

Move Location

To move a location, do one of the following:

  • Drag and Drop by clicking and holding on to the target location, then drag and drop it on the target folder (in either the folders panel or the contents panel). The target folder must be visible to use this method.
  • Cut and Paste by right-clicking on the target location and choose "Cut" from the drop-down menu, or select the target location by clicking on it and then click on the "Cut" button in the toolbar. Paste location by right-clicking on the intended folder destination and choose "Paste" from the drop-down menu, or by selecting the folder by clicking on it once and then clicking the "Paste" button in the toolbar. You can also select the folder and then right-click in the blank space below items in the contents folder and either choose "Paste" from the drop-down menu or click on the "Paste" button in the toolbar.

Delete Location

To delete a location, do one of the following:

  1. Select the location to be deleted by clicking on it and then click the "Delete" button in the toolbar.
  2. Right-click the site to be deleted and choose "Remove" from the drop-down menu.
