Copy and Paste


The Paste tool works in conjunction with the Copy tool. When objects are selected and then copied, clicking the paste icon takes the selected object(s) and pastes the object(s) into the body of a New Form or another area within the same form. The object can then be moved by clicking on the object and moving it within the body/grid of the Form Builder. Below are examples of how the Copy and Paste tools can be used both on the TrialKit Web and the TrialKit MoblApplication. Please review the form manager overview to learn how to navigate and use it.

Copy and Paste Objects in the Same Form:


Copy objects within a form:

1) Tap on an object in the body/grid of the form (Scoring Field 1 here)

2) Tap the Copy icon as shown in the following figure.

Pasting:

Now the Paste icon will be active to. Tap the Paste icon.

1)  Tap the paste icon and the form (in this example the Scoring field label is placed on form). 

2) Click on the object and drag it to the desired location in the Form Builder body/grid. 


For this example, 

1) The new field is placed as shown in the following figure right next to the scoring field 1 that we copied. 

2) Please note the Text Properties. The Field Name is SCORINGFIELD1_1 whereas the original name for the field was SCORINGFIELD1. 


The copied field will dynamically copy the Field Name and place an incremented extension of “_1” on the copied field. If the same field is copied multiple times, the copied Field Names will contain incremented extensions of _1, _2, etc. on the copied fields. This allows Form Designers to create fields quickly. 

However, remember after copying fields, Form Designers still need to remember to add new Field Names and Labels and then create the relationships between the Field Label and the Form Field. 



Copy and Paste Objects to an Existing Form or a New Form:

Form Designers can copy a single field or multiple fields from one form to another existing form or to a new form. All field properties will copy to the new or existing form. 

However, if there are fields with conditional actions the conditional actions will not copy to the new or existing form and must be re-written.

Copy and Paste Objects in the Same Form:

To copy objects within a form:

1) Click on an object in the body/grid.

2) Click the Copy icon as shown in the following figure.


Pasting:

1) After the Copy icon is clicked 

2) The Paste icon will highlight as shown in the following figure. Click the Paste icon.


After clicking the icon (2 above) the selected object is copied:

1)  It is placed on the form directly underneath the original object (in this example the Scoring field label is copied). 

1) Click on the original object and drag it to the desired location in the Form Builder body/grid. For this example, the new Free Text Field is placed in the grid below the field as shown in the following figure.

After the field is dragged and placed in another location in the body/grid, note the Text Properties. The Field Name is NUMBERS_2 whereas the original name for the field was NUMBERS. 


The copied field will dynamically copy the Field Name and place an incremented extension of “_1” on the copied field. Since the field already contained the extension “_1” when the field was copied, the system incremented the extension by “1” and it became “_2”. If the same field is copied multiple times, the copied Field Names will contain incremented extensions of _1, _2, etc. on the copied fields. This allows Form Designers to create fields quickly. However, after copying fields, Form Designers still need to remember to add new Field Names and Labels and then create the relationships between the Field Label and the Form Field.
