WordPower copy to button not working in Compass

mai 22, 2017

The Copy to mode is the action that is used to copy the contents of the message window into a button. It can then be selected at a later time and that content is available for use.

In the Wordpower pagesets the pages were converted from the Series 5 programming. At the time the conversion took place the "CopyToMode" action did not exist. Use the Settings/Editor to edit the copy button. Delete the actions that are there and add "CopyToMode"
