Suggestion: copy and paste action sets to multiple elements

Melissa Lind 6 years ago in By Screen / Design • updated by Ezra Weinstein (Administrator) 6 years ago 7

It would be great to have an easy way to copy and paste action sets to multiple elements. The current option is not really much of a time saver. It takes as much time as setting up a new action set. Perhaps you could drag and drop the action sets, and how great would it be to be able to highlight ten different elements and have them all get the new action set.


Thanks!!! Great work.

You can easily do this by simply setting up your first element setting up all your action sets, and then making copies of the element and change the graphic of the element. Rather than dropping your elements on the page first.  


The other way to do this is to access the action set manager which has a copy option in to to copy entire sets of action sets from one element to another.  You can see how to do this in the user guide:

I've tried both ways. The first is tricky because of getting the file names exact in case I import the photoshop file again. Inevitably something goes awry. And the second, I've only been able to get a single action set to copy not multiple actions sets. Is it suppose to copy multiple action sets?

If you click your Copy button in the Action Set Manager without selecting a specific action set it will copy all the action sets for that element.

It doesn't work for me. I copied everything without selecting anything, then switched to a new element, but there was no option to paste. This is what I was suggesting...I didn't know it was already suppose to work.  Thanks for the feedback Ezra.

Actually you can click in the blank area where the Paste button normally is.  We are aware of the bug that this button sometimes does not show up and it will be fixed in version 3.3.   For now just click right where the Paste button normally is.

I can't get the single copy to work either.

That works. My new suggestion is that the box doesn't automatically close after hitting apply. I've got a whole box of crayons to program.


Thanks Ezra!

For that I would create one crayon and then just copy the element over and over again using the Duplicate button.  Then just change the graphic, it would be a lot easier.
