Additional tips about copy, cut, and paste

To copy, cut, and paste data from one cell to another, you can also select data in a cell and use Ctrl+C (Copy), Ctrl+X (Cut), and Ctrl+V (Paste).

When you cut an activity, all attributes are cut along with it.

When you copy an activity, all attributes except Activity ID are copied because each activity’s ID must be unique. After you save your changes, an Activity ID is automatically assigned to the copied activity, using the default ID option specified in preferences.

When you paste an activity to a different project, the following items are not included when you paste the activity: project-level activity codes, EPS-level activity codes (if the projects belong to different EPS nodes), work products and documents, and issues.

If you are working in a grouped Activity View, when you cut or copy, then paste an activity, it inherits the value of the group you paste it to, with some exceptions. For example, if your view is grouped by activity type, if you cut a Task Dependent activity and paste it to the Resource Dependent grouping, the activity type changes to Resource Dependent. An exception to this occurs in cases where the application business logic would be invalidated by applying the attribute of the new group. For example, if you copy a Start Milestone that has a constraint to a Finish Milestone group, the activity changes to a Finish Milestone, but the Start constraint is removed because a Finish Milestone can not have a Start constraint.

Each activity that is changed because of a copy, cut, or paste action displays an icon (yellow flag to represent edited activity) in the first column. For example, if you copy an activity that has relationships, the copied activity, as well as it predecessor and successor activities display yellow flag to represent edited activity to indicate that they have changed.
