    Can I duplicate a series of positioned form fields?

    Asked by hj1act on April 14, 2013 at 03:54 PM

    If you check out my form below, you'll see that questions are about a drama festival result.

    I've used check boxes and radio buttons for the company awards and I've just figured out how to positioned form fields to identify nominees and winners for individual actors' awards. See Beryldene Hunt Cup nominations and winner for example.

    How, please, do I duplicate that mulitple choice nomination question, so that I don't have to duplicate all of the constituent drop downs?

    UPDATE: This has now been implemented.  Select any field, click on the cog, then 'Manage Fields'.  Select the fields you would like to duplicate and then click duplicate.

    Hello !

    I'm very surprised. I can not find the "duplicate".

    Where is the "duplicate" button?

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    I just found the explanation ...

    There is a bug in the matrix.

    The translation is not good.

    In the French version, the word "duplicate" turned into "passworde" (??)


    Je viens de trouver l'explication... 

    Il y a un bug dans la matrice.


    La traduction n'est pas bonne tout simplement. Dans la version française, le mot "dupliquer" s'est transformé en "passworde" (???)
