The modification mode type
This mode is used to modify entities separate from existing entities, which will stop any automatic entity merging from occuring while defining entities within this mode.
To create a mode of this type, use the pw::Application.begin command with the mode Modify specified, like this:
set modifier [pw::Application begin Modify $entities]
This mode supports the following flags in the pw::Application.begin command:
|-notopology||Normally when an entity is specified for modification, a copy of it and all of its support entities are created. This flag suppresses the copy of the support entities. For pw::Block objects, this prevents the block’s domains and connectors from being copied. For pw::Domain objects, it prevents the domain’s connectors from being copied. It has no effect on pw::DatabaseEntity or pw::Connector objects. If you make changes to objects that were not specified in the begin command, they will not be reverted if the mode is aborted.|
This action begins a mode in the application.
