Diagram > Copy element

You can copy & paste (or cut & paste, see below) single elements or blocks inside a diagram in the usual ways.

  • Select an item (or an element subsequence), go to the menu "Edit => Copy" or press <Ctrl><C> (or, equivalently, <Ctrl><Ins> since version 3.28-10) on the keyboard or the speedbutton in the toolbar. The selected element has now been copied.
  • Next click on the destination element, then choose the menu item "Edit => Paste" or press <Ctrl><V> (or, equivalently, <Shift><Ins > since version 3.28-10) on the keyboard or the speedbutton in the toolbar. The copied element (sequence) will be inserted after the chosen destination element.

If you work on several diagrams simultaneously within the same application i.e. if several Structorizer instances have been opened via Arranger then you may insert the copied elements into any of these diagrams. (If you have started several independent Structorizer processes, however, then it is not possible to transfer an element or subsequence from one of them to another this way.)

In addition, you may copy an entire diagram (if the Program/Subroutine frame is selected) to the system clipboard from where it may be pasted into an open Arranger or any other Structorizer editor - even if that represents a different process.

In order to cut an element (subsequence) in order to paste it elsewhere use menu item "Edit => Cut", press <Ctrl><X> (or, equivalently, <Shift><Del> since version 3.28-10) on the keyboard, or the New cut button speedbutton in the toolbar; also see Move element.

Note: Instead of the <Ctrl> key you may have to use an OS-specific default command key. Mac users, for example, may have to press the "apple key" instead of the <Ctrl> key in the respective key bindings ...
