A Forum reader asked the following question:

“If I make a new project in Designer, drag two ID vaults on to it, and drag an eDir to eDir driver in to connect them, the vaults are shown as connected by this driver.

If I make a new project, and import two ID vaults in to it that are connected by eDir drivers, they don’t show their connection to each other.

Is there a way to get Designer to link the eDir driver in Vault 1 to the corresponding eDir driver in Vault 2?”

And here are a few responses that were shared …


Lothar Haegar:

Connect both eDir icons with a line in developer view, and they’ll be converted into one edir2edir icon. It took me a while to figure that one out – not exactly self-explanatory …

Marvin Dean:

You can do an eDir to eDir import. When importing a driverset, if you highlight the eDir driver on the import summary page, then click the eDir2eDir button, it will allow you to import the other side of the eDir driver as well. When done this way, they will come in connected.

If you are in a state where you have two eDir drivers shown separately, and you want to make them connected and be represented as eDir to eDir drivers, you can draw a connection line between them. They will be converted to an eDir to eDir connection.
