Copy & paste objects
You can copy & paste objects within diagrams or between objects on diagrams in different tabs. You can copy & paste activity boxes with:
- resources will be copied as part of activity boxes for maps within a space
- notes and URLs will be copied
- data tables WILL NOT be copied
- drilldowns WILL NOT be copied - see below for work around
- lines and line text
- free text
- sticky notes
To copy one or more objects, highlight them and use Ctrl+C (Command+C on Mac). To paste them you hit Ctrl+V (Command+V on Mac), or use the "copy" and "paste" on the right click mouse menu. The newly copied objects will be centered on the canvas.
Note: Elements draws objects in order of their type, so lines are behind activity boxes are behind free text. So if you use Ctrl+V to paste, say, a small line, and there is a big activity box in the center of the screen, the line will be pasted BEHIND the activity.
Copy & paste drilldown
You cannot copy & paste drilldowns, but you can export a drilldown as a new map, and then import a map as a drilldown.
Left-click on an activity with a drilldown and select "Export drilldown".
Then rename the drilldown process as a new map. You will find it in your map list.
To import a drilldown process, left-click on an activity without a drilldown and select "Import".
Select a map from the list of maps in your space. You can even import a deleted map - just toggle "Show deleted maps" at the bottom of the window.
The selected map will become the new drilldown on activity.
