The advanced version may have some of this functionality...I don't know. Another can answer this better.
For FMP8 (not advanced) I'll typically make a judgement call, script by script, as to which is less painful; rewriting the script in entirety or 'Duplicating' the source script to get my copy and changing the surrounding parts of the new duplicate.
Sometimes one is easier, sometimes the other...depends on the amount and complexity of the steps I want to copy.
They just finished the install of advanced on my computer. (silent "yippee" inserted here)
With FMP8 Advanced you can copy blocks of a script and paste them into another.
Thank you Ninja.
We are doing exactly what you described. I guess we don't have any luck if using FMP 8.5, not Advanced.
You can still get FMP8 Advanced if you're wasting a lot of time. You would pay for FMP10 Advanced and an extra fee for downgrading it.
Counterintuitive, but useful so you don't put script triggers (FMP10) or conditional formatting (FMP9) into Dbases that others can't use 'cause they're still on FMP8.
Good luck to you!
