When sharing a model I personally would like to copy the folder from anywhere and simply paste it in user models folder

Instead I need to create a fake GamaProject and then paste my folder

I don't know why (I am sure there is a good reason) there is no way to paste

Is it possible to make a paste feature on this icon?


Complicated. Because what you call a "folder" needs to be a "project" to be pasted like this. And I havent found a proper way to determine it when pasting. Doesn't the import function work ?


I'm a nice guy, so I have implemented a working workaround. So, basically:

  • You can now copy files / folders in the OS and paste them (using the "Paste in User Models" item in the menu) directly in "User Models". If your selection is a file or a folder without GAMA informations (i.e. not a project), then you are asked for a project into which copying it or, if you dont choose, it will create an "Unclassified Models" project for you and paste your selection in it. If it is a GAMA project, then the project is directly imported (unless, of course, it already exists, in which case you have the possibility to merge their contents -- file by file or as a whole).
  • You can also do the same operation by DRAG'N DROP, either by dropping your files/folders in the navigator view or on the "User Models" icon.

Both operations will copy the files by default. If you want, instead, to link to a folder on your file system, then the various import functions should be preferred.

Both processes are working well, but they are not yet a complete solution, since, for some mysterious reason, I can't have the "CTRL+V" shortcut working on "User Models" and can't make the "Paste in User Models" item appear when right-clicking directly in the empty space of the navigator. I leave it for another issue...
