Patching Ops / SubPatchOps

Button

you can create new ops from existing ops. We call those subpatch ops. You can recognize them by the border around the op.

there are multiple ways to patch ops. you can use the "Patch a new op" item in the menu, or select multiple ops and find a button in the right panel to create an op from the selection.

Hierarchy of namespaces

namespaces do not only categorize and group operators, they also control who can access ops. The outcome of this is a nested hierarchy how ops can use certain ops or not.

Namespace Prefix
Ops.Patch Can contain any ops of the namespaces below
Ops.User Can contain any ops of the namespaces below, but not from above
Ops.Team Can contain any ops of the namespaces below, but not from above
Ops.Extension Can contain any ops of the namespaces below, but not from above
Ops.... cables core ops, can only contain core ops
