Duplicating Screen / Copying - Deleted Events

Tara Willgues shared this problem 4 years ago
Solved

When I try to duplicate a screen , it renames everything to the "default" names such as Item1, Group 3 - and as a result all of the Events that are associated with the names get deleted. I have also had this issue when I am copying elements from one screen to the next also. I have a fairly small prototype but we want to do a lot of simulation with the various elements and having to rebuild each item's events every time I make a new screen is incredibly frustrating and time consuming. What is the solution?

Hi,


could you send us your vp file, please? Tell me which screen you want to duplicate and I will test it.


Best regards.

In addition to this problem, I am having the spinning cursor stay on constantly. Also if I am dragging or moving multiple elements within a panel, it crashes every time, regardless of how many items I have selected.

About the spinning cursor. Are you using Windows 8.1 or MacOS 9.1? If yes, do you have any floating palette in the canvas? Is the canvas detached? Try to attach the canvas and all the floating palettes and tell me if the cursor stays constantly spinning.


Best regards.

I'm using Windows 7. I attached the palettes but am not sure how to do so with the main screen.

Here you will find the button to attach the canvas.
