When the Area Manager is opened it will check your data folder for areas that are not present on the Area Tree Index. If one or more areas is found, an “Unlisted areas” panel will be displayed underneath the Area Tree Index in the main window, which you can drag areas from onto the Area Tree Index. This is a convenient way of adding areas to the tree if you have manually placed new areas data folders into your SimCLIM 4.0 for Desktop data folder.


To add these areas to your Area Tree Index, follow the instructions below:


  1. Start the Area Manager and wait for the Unlisted Areas panel to be displayed.
  2. Select one or more areas from the Unlisted Areas panel you wish to add to the Area Tree Index.
  3. Drag the selected areas from the Unlisted Areas panel to the desired destination area in the Area Tree Index OR select the desired destination area in the Area Tree Index and click the “Insert in tree” button.



  4. The selected areas will become members of the destination area. You can use the Move up/Move down buttons to rearrange these areas if you wish.
