Copy Clips To Collection

Top  Previous  Next

The User Interface > Main Toolbar Buttons > Copy Clips To Collection

Copies selected Clip(s) to another collection.  This button is a special "drop-down" button, and is shown on most systems with a little down-arrow to the right.  It is actually two separate buttons.  The Drop-Down arrow will give a menu of available target collections.  Select the target collection, and the selected items copied.

Alternately, you can drag 'n' drop the clips with the RIGHT mouse button, and you will see a menu that allows you to either Move or Copy the clips.

Note:  Copying a large number of clips is much slower than Moving them.  Moving involves a simple database update.  But copying requires each clip to be read into memory, "cloned", and then written out as a new record.

Note: By default, clicking on the button a second time will perform the action using the same collection that you used before, and the menu of collections will not be shown. To choose a different collection, click on the "arrow" portion of the button, which will always bring up the drop-down list.  Or, turn off the option to re-use the last selection in the Options dialog - see the "Advanced" page.
