Question:

How can a function be copied from one group model to another without the need to reference the other group model?

Answer:

You cannot copy objects directly from one group model to another.  However, the XML Export/Import feature can be used to copy an object from one local model to another.  The general steps are as follows:

  1. Extract the objects to be copied from the group model into a local model.
  2. Use the XML Export feature to export the selected objects into an .xml file.
  3. Import the .xml file into a local model that was extracted from the group model that you want to copy to.
  4. Update the group model with the local model containing the imported objects.
