Enhanced functions in input forms

To make working with the input forms in FirstSpirit more convenient, some functions have been added. These can be reached via a context menu.

To make transferring content easy, all input forms now have a context menu that can be used to cut, copy, and paste the content of the input form. Right-click the title or the frame of the input form to access this context menu.

Alternatively, these functions can be executed via the following keyboard shortcuts:

  • Ctrl+X (Cut)
  • Ctrl+C (Copy)
  • Ctrl+V (Paste)

If reasons of incompatibility make it impossible to copy values from one input form to another, the “Paste” (Ctrl+V) entry is deactivated.

In text-based input forms, such as Single-line text, Multi-line text, Numbers, Date, and Link input, the following functions can also be accessed by right-clicking the text field:

  • Find: Opens a dialog for finding a specific text in the input forms.
  • Replace: Opens a dialog for finding a specific text in the input forms and replacing that text.
  • Next occurrence: If you have searched for a specific text, this entry jumps to the next hit in the input form. The search does not stop at the end of the input form.
  • Previous occurrence: If you have searched for a specific text, this entry jumps to the previous hit in the input form. The search does not stop at the beginning of the input form.
  • Undo: Resets all changes made in the input form since edit mode was activated.
  • Restore: Restores changes which have been undone.
  • Copy: Copies selected content onto the clipboard.
  • Cut: Removes selected content and transfers it onto the clipboard.
  • Paste: Pastes content from the clipboard at the cursor position.
