Move Variable/s from Part Studio to Variable Studio?

matthew_stacymatthew_stacy Member Posts: 415 PRO
Is it possible to move an individual variable, or variable table, from Part-Studio to Variable-Studio?  If so, how?

    You can copy the entire table by clicking the three-dot menu in the table -> "Copy table", then making a new row in the Variable Studio, and doing Ctrl+V in the name cell. You can format what you're pasting in Excel or similar.

    I had the "copy", but it was executing the "paste" operation that had me flummoxed.  Thanks for the tip @_anton!  Worked like a charm.

    As described above I tried to copy a table (multiple variables) using the three dot menu (from a part studio). When it pastes (ctrl-v) into a name cell in a variable studio !!all of the text remains in the name cell!!.  This is using Chrome on a PC.

    The table pastes into multiple cells (columns and rows) in Google Sheets but does not paste correctly in a variable studio.

    Any thoughts?

    You'll need to make a variable in the Variable Studio first, then single-click its name cell (such that you're not editing the name), then paste. That's the way our table paste works right now.
