Cutting, Copying, and Pasting Custom Tables
Arbortext Styler enables you to cut, copy, and paste custom table objects through operations on the Edit menu, associated keyboard shortcuts, toolbar buttons, and the shortcut menu. You cannot cut or copy multiple custom tables in a single operation.
The following procedure demonstrates how to copy and paste a custom table object. Cutting and pasting is a similar operation, but the cut table is removed from the Custom Tables list.
Copying and Pasting a Custom Table Object
1. In Arbortext Editor, open your document and use the Styler menu to open a stylesheet.
2. In Arbortext Styler, select the Custom Tables tab to display the custom table objects configured for the stylesheet.
3. Select the table you want to copy in the Custom Tables list.
4. Select Edit > Copy to copy the table.
You can also use CTRL+C or the Copy toolbar button for this operation.
5. Select Edit > Paste to paste the table.
You can also use CTRL+V or the Paste toolbar button for this operation.
Arbortext Styler pastes a copy of the table into the Custom Tables list, after the currently selected custom table. The name of the new custom table is the original custom table name with _copy_1 (or another number if more than one copy is made) appended. The new custom table is highlighted for renaming.
6. Rename the custom table, if desired.
For example, you might not need to rename the pasted custom table if you are modifying the original custom table and want to keep the copy to preserve the original state of the custom table for reference.
Definitions are always pasted into the root module. If the copied custom table was in a different module, or if it was cut instead of copied, then _copy_1 is not appended to the custom table’s name. If they are in different modules, multiple definitions can have the same name. However, definition names must be unique in each individual module.
