Copy to Clipoard - unable to paste inside Switch action

Hi, 

I'm trying the new copy to clipboard functionality. 

At the moment I can't copy inside the Switch's cases. It gave an error saying: 'Failed to find xxxx in definition'

I get this error both using Chrome and Edge, on different flows with different account.

Hi @niclasdahl ,

 

A workaround that you could consider is that you can paste the specified action in the next step of the Switch action and drag it to the branch of the Switch.

The drag and drop method doesn't seem to work for me. Even if it did, it would be very difficult to use with more than 3 switch items unless zoomed way out. I hope this is resolved soon.

Re: Copy to Clipoard - unable to paste inside Switch action

In addition sometimes flow automatically changes the order of the cases action inside the switch and there isn't a way to restore the order I had choose. 

This in some cases is very disturbing, if this is a bug I'll create a new post, otherwise is there a way to reorder cases?

Re: Copy to Clipoard - unable to paste inside Switch action

I noticed today that if I have a condition within one of the switch statements I can paste an action into the condition even though it's part of a switch.  However, if I try and paste directly into the switch it still fails with the error.
