Cutting, Copying, and Pasting Property Sets
Arbortext Styler enables you to cut, copy, and paste property sets through operations on the Edit menu, associated keyboard shortcuts, toolbar buttons, and the shortcut menu. You cannot cut or copy multiple property sets in a single operation.
The following procedure demonstrates how to copy and paste a property set. Cutting and pasting is a similar operation, but the cut property set is removed from the Property Sets list.
Copying and Pasting a Property Set
1. In Arbortext Styler, select the Property Sets list to display the property sets configured for the stylesheet.
2. Select the property set you want to copy.
3. Select Edit > Copy to copy the property set.
You can also use CTRL+C or the Copy toolbar button for this operation.
4. Select Edit > Paste to paste the property set.
You can also use CTRL+V or the Paste toolbar button for this operation.
Arbortext Styler pastes a copy of the property set into the Property Sets list, after the currently selected property set. The name of the new property set is the original property set name with _copy_1 (or another number if more than one copy is made) appended. The new property set is highlighted for renaming.
5. Rename the property set, if desired.
For example, you might not need to rename the pasted property set if you are modifying the original property set and want to keep the copy to preserve the original state of the property set for reference.
Definitions are always pasted into the root module. If the copied property set was in a different module, or if it was cut instead of copied, then _copy_1 is not appended to the property set'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.
