11.3.3. Pasting entries

When you are working in the Workspace Options window, context menus include options to enable you to paste settings so that you can make changes quickly. Like the copy options, the paste options that are available depend on the:

The available options are:

Paste Group Into

This option is only available if you right-click on a settings group, or a container disk file, with a settings group already copied to the clipboard.

This option is usually available in the left pane to paste settings groups into the settings file, or to copy between the workspace settings file and the global configuration file.

When you are working in the right pane, this option depends on the chosen entry. This means that you might not be able to paste the contents of the clipboard into the chosen location.

Paste Rule Here

Certain settings in the right pane are classed as rules. In particular, you can use rules to specify settings for projects when you are working in the Project Properties window (see Configuring project properties for details).

This option is only available if you right-click on a settings group, or a container disk file, with a single rule setting already copied to the clipboard.

This option is available in the left or right pane if you select a settings group that can accept the rule currently on the clipboard. This means that you might not be able to paste the contents of the clipboard into the chosen location.

Paste as 1st Child

To see this option, you must right-click on a parent group with a child group already copied to the clipboard.

Use this option, in the left pane, to paste a settings group into a parent group, that is to create a sibling group.

When you are working in the right pane, use this option to paste a child group. The paste only succeeds if the chosen parent group can accept the child. This means that you might not be able to paste the contents of the clipboard into the chosen location.

This option might be replaced by Paste After. This depends on the chosen entry.

Paste After

Use this option, like Paste as 1st Child, to paste a settings group into a parent group, that is to create a sibling group.

This option enables you to specify the relationship between the new group and other siblings. This determines the order in which settings are used.

Paste String

This option is only available in the right pane if you right-click on a settings group, or a container disk file, with a string setting already copied to the clipboard.

The paste only succeeds if you select a setting that can accept the string currently on the clipboard. This means that you might not be able to paste the contents of the clipboard into the chosen location.

Paste Value

This option is only available in the right pane if you right-click on a settings group, or a container disk file, with a value setting already copied to the clipboard.

The paste only succeeds if you select a setting that can accept the value currently on the clipboard. This means that you might not be able to paste the contents of the clipboard into the chosen location.
