      Dupicate or copy controls from tab(A) to tab(B) in same layout

      Post

      Greetings All,

      How do i duplicate or copy all controls and text from one tab to a second tab. I now do a highlight all and say copy the click on 2nd tab and paste. This gives me a complete duplicate of page one but i get a complete second copy instead of the controls pasting to the second tab only. What am i doing wrong.?

      I am using fm 13.4 pro advanced on a windows 8.1 machine.

          It sounds like you have selected more than just the controls that you want to copy. If you are dragging a selection box to select items on a tab panel, you have also selected the tab panel itself. If this is the case, perhaps all you need do is hold down the shift key and click the tab panel in the background before copying. (Shift click adds an unselected layout object to the group of selected objects and removes a selected object from the selection.)
