Understanding geometry macros: Copying variables from a normal macro
When a normal parametric macro is added to the calling workspace, the macro's menus will be presented to the user. The user has the option to copy the variables to the calling workspace's menus for a later rebuild.
This feature allows the user to rebuild the geometry in the macro independent of the rest of the design.
When the user selects Copy Variable, the active variable is merged into the calling workspace's menu system. The menu that contains the variable to be copied is also merged into the calling workspace. If there is a naming conflict, the new menu is modified with (x) in the name. If a naming conflict exists between the variable in the macro and the calling workspace, the user has the option to rename the variable.
