Am I able to copy a subclass along with all the processes, definitions, and settings, rename it something else and override some of the initial things that were copied over? By looking at the Simio discussion forums, it appears that I can’t. But I thought I may be able to using the Copy and Clone from Library to Edit, but I don’t see my subclasses in there.

The difference between Copy to Edit and Subclassing from the library is that when a change is made to the original object's definition, an object that was copied is not updated with the new changes in the original object's definition. Whereas a subclassed object will inherit the changes to all processes that were not "overridden". There are some items in the object that are greyed out and cannot be overwritten when it’s been subclassed. In this case, the only way to change these things is use the Copy To Edit functionality.
