    Hello Dmitry

    We are aware that the keyboard shortcuts (Ctrl+ X, Ctrl+ C and Ctrl+ V) do not work for text in the Goal Name field at the top of the panel. Those shortcuts should though work correctly in all other fields – including the Name in the goal map itself: to access this field, click twice on a goal name in the goal map (not a double-click): all the text will be selected (and you can use Ctrl+ C to copy it): if you click the name again, the cursor will appear (and you can double-click to select a word, triple-click to Select All, etc).

    If the C&P shortcuts are not working for you in any other fields please post again with details.

    You can also C&P text into and out of any Goalscape field if you use the right-click options (Cut, Copy, Paste).

    Note too that when you have selected a goal but not clicked in any of its fields, when you use Ctrl+ X, Ctrl+ C and Ctrl+ V, those operations apply to the goal itself – this is to allow you to copy and paste entire goals (and their subgoals) – this is especially useful when constructing a template or any project with repeated processes (eg editing and testing).

    All the best
