Development Environment Release 76

Several times happens I need to copy a user action and make a few changes, but when i notice i am making changes on the original action and have to undo it all...


It would be nice to be automatically redirected to my new created action....


Does this happen to many of you also?

Erm, ofcourse not!

*ahum*

yeah, it happens me to also.
It is rather annoyinmg the screen ain't updated.
It has happened to me a few times too.
Merged this idea with 'Focus and open newly duplicated action' (created on 09 Feb 2017 16:34:42 by João Gonçalves)

Every time we duplicate an existing action the original remains focused/selected. Most of the times this ends up making me edit a bunch of stuff on the original action instead of the newly pasted one. Also it is so annoying to have the need to take my hand out of the keyboard into the mouse to select the new action.

Would like to see this for screens/web blocks as well. I have had this happen many times, where I copied a web block and ended up changing the original web block.

Hello Diogo,

Thanks a lot for your idea, these little things really make the difference. I'm happy to announce that we've just implemented this idea and, from now on, when you copy/paste an action the new action will be the one being opened and focused. As always, you can find your contribution in our product release notes:

Hope you all like it!
Cheers,
