In this article we show you several options to switch between work areas and variants .
Work areas and variants are the basic structure of your shopfloor and divide it into logical areas.
In VR only one work area is active at a time. You can edit objects in this area and all changes are saved in it. The inactive stations are shown simplified. To edit objects in an inactive area you have to switch to it first.
You have the following possibilities to switch between different workspaces and variants in Halocline:
Use the list on the left to activate a work area or variant with one click. Alternatively you can also select a work area in the preview on the right by clicking on the desired area. The active work area is outlined in blue in the preview.
When you open a variant in VR you can switch your work area and variant via the drop-down menu in the desktop functions bar.
In the VR menu
Open the menu in VR and click on "Load" in the menu tab. In the opened window you can now directly select a different work area by clicking on its name. Click on the arrow to get to the sub-selection of variants. Simply select your desired variant by clicking on the name. Here you can also access old versions.
Via the VR labels
In Halocline Layout you can also change work areas by clicking on a name label.
If you want to restore an old version click on the "three dots" menu in a variant in the start screen and select the menu item "manage". From the list of old saves you can then create the desired variant by clicking on "Create new variant". Now you have a variant with the old state and you can easily exchange and compare it in VR with the new one.
