cloning pages

Postby markvandermeulen » Thu Aug 14, 2014 10:00 pm

Good evening everyone
I was wondering if it is possible to make a exact copy of a already created page in WD?
I'am creating a virtual controller for my pandoras box pro player setup and have made a page with a media selection. Per mediafolder i have made a button to change the mediabuttons layout. What i would like to achieve is to create a page per layer where i can select the media i would like to play back. In basic copy/paste of all WD attributes does do what it should, but the aligning of the attributes is not the same when pasting on a new page, so what i would like to do is clone the page and then edit all buttons and ID's

Thanks in advance

I have tried it but then all elements are placed at different places. Second thing is that it pastes a few new elements at my first page (text boxes) there are some text boxes in the first page but they are copied and pasted at the same page and on the second page. I'am now using WD 4.7 Build 821, i know that its a release candidate but though to give it a try

Hi Mark,

you're right, the text boxes behave wrong when being copied. I have added that to the issue list.

All controls are pasted at the cursor position, so you may have to move them afterwards.

What if you use "<ctrl> p"

I have been copying multiple items in the current release candidate like this and it is working for me just fine.
