Copying ScriptLines from Another Script

You can also copy or move ScriptLines within the same script, in the scripts editor, using drag and drop.

 

To copy ScriptLines from any script to the current script, use the Copy from ... functionality, which is accessible from the scriptlines toolbar.

 

It can also be invoked or by right-clicking on a ScriptLine and selecting the Current ScriptLine and Copy from ... from the pop-up menu that then appears, or via the Current ScriptLine sub-menu of the scripts menu.

 

Important: makes sure that you select the ScriptLine under which you want to copy (or that you want to replace by) the new ScriptLines, before you invoke the Copy from ... menu or button.

 

A dialog appears that lets you preview and then select the ScriptLine you wish to copy.

 

 

Select a script folder on the left, then a script in the middle and finally one of the ScriptLines that can be copied (as seen below, only the ScriptLines that can be copied will look enabled).

 

When you select one of the enabled ScriptLines, one or both of the Insert Under and Replace Line button will appear enabled.

 

Using this button, the line selected in this dialog will be inserted below the line currently selected in the scripts editor (ie. the script will have a new, additional, ScriptLine).

 

If the selected ScriptLine in the scripts editor is either a FrontPages or BackPages or an Insert, then the types of ScriptLines that can be inserted under are: BlankPages, PlaceHolders, QuarkPages and DiaryGridLines.

If the selected ScriptLine in the scripts editor is either a BlankPages or a PlaceHolders or a QuarkPages or a DiaryGridLines, then the types of ScriptLines that can be inserted under are: BlankPages, PlaceHolders, QuarkPages and DiaryGridLines.

Additionally, If the selected ScriptLine in the scripts editor is a DiaryGridLines, then the Insert type of ScriptLines can also be inserted under.

 

This button will be enabled if the line selected in this dialog will fit below the line selected in the Scripts Editor (this button will be enabled or disabled exactly as the ScriptLines on the right of the dialog).

Using this button, the line selected in this dialog will replace the line currently selected in the Scripts Editor (ie. the Script will have the same number of ScriptLines).

 

This button will be enabled if the line selected in this dialog is of the same type as the line selected in the Scripts Editor, including ScriptLines of the BookFormat and International types.

 

To copy more than one ScriptLine to the current script, repeat the above process.

 

Finally, remember that you can also copy or move ScriptLines within the same script, in the scripts editor, using drag and drop.
