Is it possible to move an entire screen from one app to another?

I have one app that has been in use for quite a while now. I've been developing further functionality for that app in another app. Is it possible to move a screen (and all its pieces parts) from one app to another?

You can use CTRL + A to select all the controls in an app form and CTRL + C to copy them. Then, use CTRL + V to paste them in the other blank app form. The formulas stay intact between the two apps. You may need to fix some references to controls in the new app as well as some formatting.

I haven't used the component feature yet. Would i just copy gallery and each of the labels and buttons and then paste them into a new component?

You should take the advice of @EricLott instead.  It appears you can copy + paste from one app to another.  I had no idea this was possible.  What a great question: I've learned something here!

I tried that first thing. It doesn't work when trying to copy controls like a gallery or buttons from one app to another separate app. You can copy from one screen to another screen, but it has to be in the same app.
