This may already be on the horizon but I would love to see the ability to copy and paste controls and layouts between apps.
If I build a screen with all of it's layout, buttons, fields, etc. I'd like to be able to easily copy it from 1 app into another.
This would allow for multiple people working on a project but not in the same live file at the same time.
Excited that this feature is now complete! You can now copy and paste across apps using Ctrl+C to copy and Ctrl+V to paste.

Any talk of making it more of a collaborative development environment like the MS Office Applications are now so we don't have to do copy and paste / import / export. Maybe more of a TFS like functionality and allow users to lock or check out resources while they work on different parts of an app?
Hey @seth_ricard - That is a separate idea that we are looking into. Copy and paste is still a feature that we would want to include in addition to any collaborative functionalities. Probably best to vote and receive updates for collaborative devlopment on another idea specifically for it. https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/Collaboration-more-than-one-user-developing-an-a...

I must either be hitting a bug or this doesnt work with objects that are in a group. I am unable to copy/paste anything between apps
Hey @Anonymous - I'll follow up on private message. Let's see what issue this is and get it fixed.
I just tested and confirmed it does work with two very simplistic apps and copying a single control.
Why two developers can't do changes on two different pages of the same app?
I know that, in powerapps, source codes are not saved as separate files under the project.
Is that the reason?
Is there a posibility to control the powerapps project sources in TFS as separate files and under the project?
Copy/paste of control is one thing... but I want to copy past an entire screen! Can do?
