    FEATURE REQUEST: Copy and paste a number of fields at once

    Asked by aracersedge on October 25, 2012 at 06:34 PM

    I am creating a ski reservation form and for each skier I need the exact same information -- up to seven skiers (after that they need to call for special discount.

    I've created what I need for the first skier -- which consists of 9 separate fields. Is there a way to copy all nine fields at one and just copy and past six times -- or do I need to copy each field 6 different times?

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Currently, there is no way to duplicate multiple fields at once, however, you can duplicate your fields on by one.

    We are sorry for the inconveniences.

    Please feel free to contact us if you need any further assistance.

    That option is asked from time to time, so we will consider adding it in the future. However, there is no ETA for now.

    Thank you for your kind words :)

    hi, please add my vote to this as well.

    except, i would also love ability to copy a block of controls from one form to another,

    and/or ability to save a block of controls in a personal library of control-groups.

    i think many users would love this.

    Another +1 for this feature. Clicking "Duplicate" multiple times for large numbers of entries can can tiring. Additionally, the duplicate tends to mess up the order and that requires more effort to re-arrange things.
