    And secondly, cloning a form is a labor intensive means of copying a single page or group of pages in a large account. As stated elsewhere in the Forum, copying elements does not copy conditions, nor does it necessarily copy formatting. After going to all the trouble of setting up a page the way you want it, there are times when you'd like to reuse it in other forms just the way it is, without having to rebuild it all over again; e.g., registration pages, etc.? Is there a way to copy a page in its entirety from one form to another, including all formatting and conditions? (Again, if that's not possible at this time, please forward that to your development team as a future upgrade suggestion.)

    To my understanding, you want to copy the fields and conditions using the Field Manager app. The only way to copy the conditions is to clone the form or do it manually. Here's a guide on how to clone a form from your account: https://www.jotform.com/help/27-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-Your-Account

    Just to confirm before we escalate your request, you want to copy the page (for example page 3 only) including the conditions on your form to another form? If yes, let us know. 

    We'll wait for your reply. Thank you.

    That's exactly correct John. Cloning a form is only a partial work-around, because you still can't collate the pages from several different forms together into a single document in order to get the pages that you want. You stated my suggestion for your development team correctly. It would be great if we could Copy/Cut and Paste pages between forms, like you can mix pages between separate PDF files, and the same with Word documents.

    Thanks!
