Title: Copying attributes
Post by jfontana on Dec 23rd, 2014, 1:56pm

Hi,

Is there any way to copy many attributes and values at the same time? I'm trying to use $OnAdd to have notes inherit a bunch of attributes from the parent note when they are added but I find it a bit tedious to have to introduce the list the attributes that I want to be inherited in the Action section of the Action Inspector. Being able to select a bunch of attributes and drag them or copy them and paste them elsewhere would save a lot of time.

I've searched for information through all of the documentation I have been able to gather but I haven't been able to find any help on this.

Thanks in advance.

JM

I'm afraid not. But you can compose the rule in a noteís text, which makes it easier to view, and then move to to the action when itís ready. Since it's inherited, you only have to type it once.

You might be able to save some of this work using prototypes.
