The Global Commands dialog box allows you to configure and send a command to multiple items in the Metasys system. You can access the Global Commands dialog box from the Action Menu by selecting Command. However, you must have more than one object selected in the navigation tree or the display panel to open the Global Commands dialog box. You also can access the Global Commands dialog box from the right-click menu (in supported views).
