Restoring Customized Elements to their Default State

If you forget that changes you make to a table in a view modify that table's definition, you might customize a standard table accidentally. You can reverse the changes you made, but if you made a lot of changes before you realized your mistake, it's easier to restore the standard

table. You can restore standard elements by copying them from the global template into your o active project using the Organizer.

® Follow these steps to restore a standard element:

1 Open the project to which you want to restore a standard element.

2 Click Tools, Organizer to open the Organizer dialog box.

3 Click the tab for the type of element that you want to restore.

Tip Restoring the table that appears in the current view

You can't restore a table if it appears in the current view. Either switch to a view that does not use that table, or right-click the All Cells box (the blank cell above the ID numbers) and click another table name on the shortcut menu.

4 In the <Element> Available In box on the right side of the dialog box, click the project to which you want to restore the standard element.

<Element> stands for the name of the current tab. The global template appears on the left side of the dialog box by default.

5 Click the name of the element you want to restore in the list of elements in the global template on the left side of the dialog box.

6 Click Copy. When the confirmation dialog box appears asking you to confirm that you want to replace the element in the project, click Yes.
