Workspace browser🔗

The workspace browser is located at the top and is the part of the Workspace panel which contains assets that are editable.

Here the user is free to create models and packages and arrange them as desired. It is also possible to create, import, and export models and packages using the buttons next to the workspace name. The UI also supports the renaming of top level classes.


It is not possible to import an entire workspace zip file using the import button. To import a complete workspace, exit to the landing page by clicking the Impact logo twice and use the workspace import functionality there.


Favorites are used to quickly access commonly used experiment models and components. The user can create favorites by dragging a model to the Favorites section or by using the context menu of a model and selecting 'Add to favorites'.

A favorite is a shortcut to the model so when a favorite is dragged to the canvas, the content will be the class that the favorite is a shortcut for. The user can structure favorites by creating packages and rearrange the content by dragging and dropping.


Under Libraries, a set of global libraries can be found that are available across all workspaces. The libraries available to the user may be dependent on the specifics of the license purchased.

Impact provides support for using multiple library versions, in case the user requires different library versions for their work. Latest library is loaded by default unless there is metadata for workspace packages that identify specific versions.

The required version can be chosen from the drop down menu that appears.


The impact > libraries directory under Users must include multiple versions of the library for the drop down to appear.

This includes the Modelica Standard Library, commercial Modelon libraries and other libraries that might have been added to your Modelon Impact installation. These global libraries are not editable.
