I have a number of processes that I want to turn into product systems. Is there a short cut for this or do I have to turn each process into a product system one by one?

I thought I had posted this previously, but the post isn't jumping out. Anyways here's a python script that you can paste into the built-in python developer tool. You should get a dialog box asking you to select all the processes you want to turn into product systems. Note that this is currently only setup to link to default providers only. If you want to change that to one of the other options you'll need this line: linkingConfig.providerLinking = DefaultProviders.ONLY to DefaultProviders.PREFER_DEFAULTS or something. Good luck!
