It would be nice to be able to convert a webscreen into a webblock and vice versa with one click.

In 5.0 you can already do that by copying the screen and then using Paste As and selecting Web Block
Indeed Gustavo is right.

Just copy your webscreen, select "Paste As..." and then use the option WebBlock.


Already Done.
It would also be nice if this functionality included the ability to select a container on a page and convert it to a web block. 

For example, intelliwarp crates a linked table what you drag an entity to an edit record page.  It would be nice to be able to convert that object to a web block

Just like we convert Local variable to input parameter and vice-versa,
The option to convert Web Block to Web Screen and vice-versa will be very helpful.

Instead of copying and pasting from one section to another, This option will save more development time.

Hi,

This is already possible. True that the option is not as visible as the Convert to with parameters and variables.

Try to cut your Screen, and Right click the UI Flow and select Paste As. You will see the following:

Selecting the Web Block option gives you what you want. The same window pops up when cutting a web block or email.


Cheers

Oh cool, still like the idea, because this should be more visible!

If it could be added as options on the context menu it would reduce the need to cut/copy and then paste as web block/screen.

For example, if you right-click on a web-screen there could be an option to convert to a web block, and vice-versa.
