Copy and paste scene text
« on: May 20, 2015, 06:22:22 AM »
Grab a scene with some text in it.

Copy some text from another scene --
Highlight the scene text -- hit control V

And instead of replacing the scene text you just highlighted, it pastes a new resource of text.

Verified on several computers with several different scenes.

It should replace the text.

I do not have this issue. First, you need to make sure you include version of the items you are inquiring or having issues with. But beyond this. Using the latest build of Studio, 4.34.11, I do not have this issue. Here are the steps exactly as i have done them and should be done based on the method you described.

  • Go to Scene #1 and select the text component you wish to copy the text of. Say, Rich Text.
  • Now that the component is selected, highlight the text in the far right column and copy it with either right mouse click or keyboard shortcuts such as Cmd-C or Ctrl-C.
  • Go to Scene #2 and select the text component you wish to overwrite/replace
  • Now do the same as above with the text in the far right column, except you will paste instead of copy. Cmd-V or Ctrl-V.
This has worked every time I have tried it.
