Copying Questions

Hi,

I was trying to build an application and found that some of my questions
are similar in nature except for some key words. Many of these questions
were multiple-choice ones with many options to choose from. When I have a
similar question within the same form, I need to recreate the question and
popolate all the list items. Instead, is there a mechanism using which I
can just make a copy of the existing question and then just change the
"ID" as it would be random generated in this case.

If there is any short-cut existing for this, please guide me.

Thanks,
Jeffrey

Unfortunately, this isn’t something that’s available in the current form
designer. However it’s a great idea for a future upgrade. I’ve added it to
our backlog of features, so look out for our announcements in the future to
see when it gets released.

If you want to get your hands dirty, you could try manually copying and
pasting sections of the form as XML. However, we only recommend this if you
are somewhat technical and familiar with XML / XForms, as you could easily
break your form if you messed something up.
