vRO8 Convert Input Variable to Variable (formerly known as an Attribute)

I have started developing with vRO 8 and wanted to know if there is a way to convert an existing input variable into a Variable (which used to be known as an attribute).  Previously, would just right click input variable and then select move as attribute.  What are the equivalent steps in vRO 8?

Try the following steps:

  1. on Inputs/Outputs tab, select the checkbox of the input parameter that you want to promote to variable
  2. click the Copy button, and then click Delete button
  3. go to Variables tab
  4. click Paste button

This will copy and past the name and type but it loses all of the references (bindings)

OK, let me check with the team if copy/paste sequence was supposed to also deal with bindings. But most likely 'move to variable' use case is just not handled (yet) by the new client.

Got a confirmation that this feature is on roadmap / product backlog, so it will be implemented at some point; it's just not prioritized yet.
