Flow Editor - Copy-Paste expressions!

To my great surprise, I've discovered that one can't copy-paste expressions in MS Flow.

I have some things which I re-ule between flows, and we all know that the WDL expressions aren't the easiest thing to read.

Would be nice to have some copy-paste.

Thanks!

Status: Completed

You can now copy and paste content from inside of actions, including expressions. You can even copy the content into a text editor and edit it there if you want.

As I understand it, right now (October 2020) it is not possible to copy/paste ANY underlying 'expression' for reuse in another action. The Flow designer 'automagically' transforms a specific expression to something not editable and fixed, leaving this very high on maintenance and adaptability. It would be very handy if copying the expression directly were possible to speed up building flows.

 

More specific: please make it possible to copy/paste ANY underlying (converted) expression for easy re-use. I mean copy the string in the popup to the clipboard.
