Copy form data view formatting to edit view



I laid out a screen to view data from a forms gallery and now I am creating the edit/add new screen for the form. Is there any way to copy across the formatting and layout from the screen data view to the screen edit view? I was hoping not to have to go throught the whole edit view and re format it to look the same as the data view.


Thank you,

Re: Copy form data view formatting to edit view

Hi hgowdy,


Currently we are able to transfer data from one screen to another screen, but seems that we are not able to copy the format and layout from a display screen to an edit screen.

If you want to have the same screen edit view, I would suggest you reformat the screen.

You could also consider to submit an idea at PowerApps Ideas Forum about your idea, other customers who have the same request would vote and comment your idea at here:
