#jArchi script to merge multiple concepts (and delete others)
// Merge multiple concepts (and delete others)
// Requires jArchi -
// This script merges multiple concepts (and delete others)
// Version 1.1 (2020/01/20) Add an option to keep only the content of the "target" concept
// Version 1.0 (2019/11/12) First version published
// Known limitation: works only on elements, not relationships
// (c) 2020 Jean-Baptiste Sarrodie;

Copy link

Nice! Works like a charm. Didn't know if it would keep my links and such--with the cancel option, it certainly does! Very powerful and timesaving capability! Thanks for sharing!
