Pasting parameters

  1. I'd like to be able to past selected parameters (context-sensitive, naturally) from one element to another (or ALL others in a multi-select including different types of elements). Naturally, only the element parameters that can apply to all receiving elements would be available.

  2. Have you found a workaround for this problem? Nope... apart from manually changing all of them.

  3. Are there examples of other apps with this feature? Or, have you seen examples of this elsewhere on the web? (Please include a URL).

Real Draw Pro. (you should get a copy, seriously... for potential inspiration... it's a truly unique tool with amazing capabilities that melds SVG and bitmap. It's crazy!)

Here is the document page where they discuss the implementation of a style library...

But the idea of copying the style from a library or from another object, and then pasting the attributes would be a big deal... Best if a (sticky) checklist of which attributes to paste could be used. Real Draw is heavy-handed in that it applies all of the attributes... making it less useful.

  1. Supa Dupa!
