Create an object from the Objects tab
To create a new object, click on the Create new object button from the Objects tab.
The system will display the following pop-up:
Once you start typing the name of the object:
- The system will display any existing objects that match your input. This avoids creating duplicate objects. In fact, the system will reject duplicate names within the same object definition.
- The system suggest objects that might be useful based on the previous use in the library. When you select such an item, the object definition will be automatically selected and you will be able to create the object by clicking OK.
Note: When creating multiple objects, ensure that there are no leading and/or trailing spaces in the object names. For example, if you want to create three objects, namely A1, A2, and A3, then use A1;A2;A3 as the input string. A1; A2;A3 or A1 ;A2; A3 or any combinations with leading and/or trailing spaces will not work.

Press the Add relationship button:
In the pop-up, instead of searching for an existing object, press the Create new object button:
Enter the name of the new object and select its object definition:
Press OK and the system will return to the add relationship pop-up with the new object selected for you:
