All these functions are available on Zoom Toolbar or in View and Windows menus.

This tool contains following Model features:
Using Model Actions helps you work more effectively. You can:
Note: Action Definition is a custom configuration of an Action (e.g. Convert Model). Instead of configuring Action every time from scratch, you are now able to save its Definition for later use (e.g. Convert Model from DB2 10.5 to DB2 10.1). In the future you can simply execute the Action Definition without worrying about its settings.
If you clicked through Action dialogs and forgot to save the Action Definition in progress, worry not. Every executed Action creates an Action Definition called Last *Action*. It contains the settings of the last Action you ran.
Also please note that all saved Action Definitions are part of the model. You can transfer Action Definitions from one Model to another by saving them to a file in original Model and loading them from the file in target Model.

Action Definition can be saved by clicking the Save Action button which is located in the Review dialog (the last dialog every Action has).
Fill in the new Action Definition name and an optional description. Click Save.
The newly saved Action Definition will now show up in the list.
