Modifying Shared Items
Go Up to Using the Object Repository
If you modify an item in the Object Repository, your changes will affect all future projects that use the item as well as existing projects that have added the item with the Use or Inherit option. To avoid propagating changes to other projects, you have several alternatives:
- Copy the item and modify it in your current project only.
- Copy the item to the current project, modify it, then add it to the Repository under a different name.
- Create a component, DLL, component template, or frame from the item. If you create a component or DLL, you can share it with other developers.
