Description electricfilm 2007-02-07 18:23:23 UTC
I have a form with a background image for positioning form controls.
I have to put controls all over the page.
I'm starting formating one TextBox with properties I like (flat, border color,
font size...), then duplicating this everywhere. The rest is resizing.

When duplicating I need a Duplicate button, since Copy/Paste is working bad in
case of a page without paragraphs (everything is in the background image).
Cannot manage to record a macro because de-select is not recorded.

My commands to duplicate a TextBox: TextBox Ctrl-C
3.if I press Ctrl-V whithout deselecting first TextBox nothing happen !WRONG!
4.if I deselect TextBox by clicking anywhere in page there are 2 cases. If I am
at the beginning of page it is ok, but if I'm down on the page, trying to insert
a control there, my page scrolls up to the first paragraph. !WRONG! Ctrl-V and I get what I want, a duplicate of TextBox control.
Please eliminate step 4, and leave object selected but allow Paste or ADD a new
menu/shortcut for DUPLICATE object.
