Historically it should just work... although I haven't tried much with v12.
I wonder if this has anything to do with the themes of the layouts?
Obviously you have to make sure you are pasting to the same base-table and that all the scriipts and fields exist... but evenso FM of olde would paste all the elements and note any <missing field> or such.
You didn't say which OS you are using?
of course we are talking about a file that you have Full Access rights to and that is not on a locked disk...?
Yes I do have full access rights and my os is 10.x on a mac system.
Thanks to Lindsey I tried to copy the layout again but this time I set up a blank layout in the theme that I was wanting and the simple copy and paste worked.
Thank you Lindsey
good! Themes are fairly new to all of us and take a bit of getting used to;-)
Is it possible to copy a layout including the size and definitions of Sub-Summary parts?
I can select all the fields and copy and paste them to a new layout, but that does not move the Parts definitions.
You can Duplicate a layout but you can't copy and paste the structural parts of it... just the elements you put on it.
Thanks Lyndsay, yes it helps to clarify what I thought was the case.
