You can import a workspace to your worktop.

To import a workspace

  1. Right-click in the Worktop (outside of a workspace thumbnail view) to open a menu.

  2. Click Import to open a file-selection window.

  3. Select a .vw file and press Open or Open as read-only.


Visualizations cannot be imported like workspaces. When you right-click in the worktop and select Import, you can import an existing workspace but not a visualization residing outside of the workspace. If you attempt to import a visualization, you will receive a “not a valid workspace” error.
