Insert screens from another app

It would be great if I could save screens I've created in one PowerApps app and paste or insert it into another.

Hello,

 

This is a duplication of "Copy and paste between open apps" idea.

It will be useful either by copy and paste between apps or by creating a link to multiple apps.

We can avoid creating same screen multiple times for each apps.

I agree that this feature would make life easier.  I can copy stuff from one app to another as Max's link explains, but I wish I could grab a whole screen to copy over in one action.  Copying over all the objects and pasting into a new screen in the destination app gets the job done but requires a bit of tweaking to realign everything just as it was in the original app--which can take a while depending on how much loses its place.

 

@Anonymous I don't think what the author wants is a duplicate of the link you provided.  That feature request (which has been completed) allows us to copy and paste objects between apps, but what this request is for is to be able to copy a complete screen between apps.  We still can't do that.  I am going to have to pull a couple of screens over from one app to another, and to do it I will need to create blank screens in the destination app and copy/paste every item over.  It would be simpler to just copy the whole screen and then insert it into the new app.

Hope to help you.
The main APP is not operated above, everyone to build their own development APP, develop their own modules
After working for a day, copy the content developed on the app developed by yourself to the main app. Example:
(1) Open Screen after development and Ctrl +A select all the content on the page

(2) Open the another app, create a new Screen, and then execute Ctrl +V

(3) As can be seen from the figure, the reference contents of data source and picture were not brought over. The style, value and formula were all brought over, so the data source, picture and other references needed to be modified
(4) Save and test

2. Advantages:
It can improve the development efficiency and greatly shorten the time for each person to occupy the main Apps. It will only take less than half an hour when pasting the content that is open every day and modifying the data source.
3. Disadvantages:
The pasted content data source and referenced images cannot be brought in. You need to specify and modify them manually
