the Repository

the MADCAT v1.2.0 now offers a repository to help you manage your elements (tools, models and renderers) and use them in different workspaces without duplicating the files. It is a folder on your system where workspaces can be placed to be used as templates for new workspaces. By default, the repository is placed in the installation folder of the MADCAT.

The location of the repository can be changed by modifying the registry key /HKCU/Software/MADCAT/WorkspaceRepository

The MADCAT Workspace Manager

the Repository is managed by a tool which is integrated into your system. This tool can :

  • Register elements of a new workspace into the repository
  • Create a new workspace with elements taken from the repository

It can be invoked through the context menu of the Windows explorer or with the command line (cmd) :

One wizard helps you create a new MADCAT workspace using the templates in your repository :

Right click on an empty folder and select the command 'Create a new MADCAT workspace here' to activate this wizard from the contextual menu of Windows Explorer.

Another helps you add a new template in the repository

Right click on a XWS file and select the command 'Copy this workspace to the repository' to activate this wizard from the contextual menu of Windows Explorer.
