Entity Managers are child or dependent window of the main editor. Child windows have some common properties:
They are closely related to the parent window 'knows' about changes in the child window, like the selection of an item, and vice vera.
They can be resized and positioned independently of their parent window.
They are minimized when the parent window is minimized, and they are restored with their parent window.
They are closed when the parent window is closed.
However, child windows do NOT move with the parent window.
You can copy the content of every entity, be it a document name, a group name, a code, memo or quotation name, or a node in a network and paste it into an editor or a network.

If you copy the name of an entity and paste it into a network, it is pasted as node. If links already exist, they will be shown immediately.
