"Save for previous Version" for a Class without Inheritance

Status: Declined
Separating a class from its ancestry would irrevocably break the class rendering most saves for previous useless. There is nearly no utility in a child class cut off from its parent. Most would be broken.

When in a LabView Project the "Save for previous Version" menu-function (see image) for a class is used, a given class-Inheritance is allows considered.

It would be very helpful to have a option in the "Save for previous Version" dialog to disable the Inheritance of the

selected class while saving to file.

This will help to reduce the time and mistakes during implementation of developed class (with inheritance) into

a new LabView project with a other iinheritance-structure.

Der MaryH, I use LV-OOP since a long time. For my work its nessesary to use the "save as" in the manner described before. I must do the Inheritance deletion for the class manually!
