The <Search/Replace> option on the Copy Folder Models panel are explained in more detail on the Search and Replace Post:
Visit: Search and Replace
The Models from the selected project have been listed in the <Original Model Name> column in the panel.
Below the <Search/Replace> option has been utilised and has found three (3) matching model names in the project. Meaning the model/s will be ticked if they match the search criteria, and a new model name also filled out if the replace option is entered correctly.
The <Status> column will show a ‘match’ against the models found by the Search and Replace option.
Note: Any model/s displayed in the <Original Model Name> column that are coloured ‘yellow’ refers that the model name already exists in the current project.
Hit the <Copy> button to copy any selected/ticked models into the current project.
Hit the <Refresh> button to refresh the model list in the panel.
Hit the <Finish> button to close the panel.
After the model/s are copied into the project, use the ‘Model Information Table’ to check that the model/s are now in the project. Use: Models => Model Information Table
