Hype’s built-in behavior to change layouts is doing so based on a breakpoint width. Each Layout can have a different width assigned to it. This is in the Scene/Layout Inspector.
You may simply need to change this to 1200 on your layout?
Note that the Layouts pane shows underneath the names the sizes in which the layout will be used.
If you do not want to use Hype’s own algorithm based on width, then the
The nature of Layouts is that they may be wildly different from each other and have quite different content. To this end they are effectively entirely different Scenes.
If you need contact to be linked together so a change in one layout affects other layouts, then you can place content in a Symbol.
Of course, I do agree the process of synchronizing across layouts could be easier and this is an area we’d like to improve.
It’d be useful to know more about what you’re doing or how you are pasting to know what isn’t working? Note that if you want animations to show up with an element, you must choose Edit > Pate with Animations.
