Regards,

Paul

Running LiveCode Indy 9.0.1 on Windows 10

In a card i can copy and past one or multiple objects, but in the project browser i am not able to copy a card or an object within a card and past it with right mouse-button. Option is graded-out.

regards,

Paul

Hm. This is the 6.5.x project browser, I don't think I ever saw copying a card in the pb so I verified that here (linux) -

Having said that though, I never noticed any problems copying objects, so that may be something.

I might be mistaken. Tried to see if in LC 7.01 this option was available and it is not.
Still I would like to be able easy to clone a card so I am able to use a card as a template to create more cards that are only mildly different.

Any idea's ?

Well, off the top of my head the easiest way to do what you want (if I get it) would be to set up a template stack/card, then start using it. But that may be over-simplifying it, I'm sure you would have thought of it already.

You already had it. :) "Clone this cd". You'll have to use the message box though.
