Add the ability to import a layout from another file or copy and paste a layout from layout manager list
I would add to this the ability to copy and paste layouts from one file to another.
I didn't see this post before I posted a very similar idea…
Copy and paste or import layouts [now flagged as a duplicate]
Huge thing ...
This is really a needed feature. A layout should be built in a test database, and then imported into the live 'production' copy with any scripts needed, tables too. I would be so happy to have this layout import feature!
Big on my wish list. Especially if the file you are copying from has the same of very same structure.
The ability to Copy and Paste Layouts is not the same as the ability to Import Layouts.
Copy and Paste Layouts + a utility like Clip Manager Clip Manager for Mac would give more flexibility than a simple Import Layout feature.
The Product Idea Copy and paste or import layouts is NOT A DUPLICATE feature request. Someone please fix the Product Idea Copy and paste or import layouts so I can up-vote.
Both Copy and Paste Layouts and Import Layouts would be good features. Copy and Paste Layouts would be the better choice to implement first.
Down-voted to draw attention to the fact that the ability to "Import Layout" would be an incomplete implementation. Here listed in order of empowerment A. The ability to copy and paste layouts B. The ability to import layouts If you have A you can "do" A and B If you have B, you can "do" B but not A Here is my instant run off vote, in order of preference 1. A and B 2. A 3. B 4. Neither
I changed the title so that the Copy/Paste idea that was flagged as duplicate doesnt get lost
How do you change the title after you have created the post? I did not know you could do that.

This is necessary to Make FileMaker Work and to Make Copy + Paste just work
