Paste In Place

Something that is really frustrating is when you copy something from one screen and try paste it in another, but for some reason it doesn't paste it at the same co-ordinates, it offsets them. Is there anyway to change it, or give another  paste option/shortcut to paste at the same co-ordinates you copied the original element from, because that would've saved me so much time Smiley Happy

@Curaxu,

Thank you so much for posting this idea. I've wanted to do it for a long time but never found the time to do so... Smiley Happy

PowerApps Team: I'd really appreciate if this idea could become a reality... It is so annoying to have to move the controls once they were pasted. And if I may add: all properties for the pasted controls should stay intact (so if a control has a formula for its position, please do not replace it with a numeric value).

Thanks.

Hi @Curaxu,

To save you some headaches, as a current workaround you can set the coordinates as a formula that'll calculate to your desired coordinates.

For example, if you'd like a Component to exist at 450x/100y for every screen you copy it into - set the X formula to 450/1 and the Y formula to 100/1.

PowerApps will maintain these formulas in the copy, thus saving you having to move them again.

Cheers,

Ramiro
