we've got a number of WBTs that were created in CP 2017 as responsive projects. So we've got each item on the slides 3 times (=3 different slide layouts for 3 different output sizes).
As we are reworking these WBTs, we're correcting the text on the our main slide layout (typing into the various textboxes there).
Now we need to make sure that all these changes will be visible on all 3 layouts (i.e. all 3 output sizes).
Unfortunately the two ways I've found so far how to do it*), are to manually touch every single text box.
This is not only time consuming but also very error-prone 😞
MY QUESTION: Is there a way like "transfer all text content from the first size-layout to all the other size-layouts"? 🙂
If so, please give me good description how to find it (notice: my CP-menues are in German, so I'd appreciate reading the full click-path for successful retracing, thanks)
*) This are the two manual options I've found so far:
a) either right-click on the individual text boxes on the slides and select "Text auf alle Ansichten anwenden (=apply text to all size-views" - unfortunately this context menue option is not available with multiple textbox selection!
b) or, I type everything in totally manually (...very error-prone!)
Thanks for any suggestions to optimize my workflow here,
What's wrong with good old 'Find and Replace'?
the trouble with "Find & Replace" is,
- that I need to know all the original texts, that had been replaced (and in our kind of training there are plenty of similar but not identical issues)
- that I'd sill have to manually touch every text box that had been changed.
What I'm looking for is a "change all" function.
Thanks and vbr,
Are you using the Breakpoint views workflow, not the Fluid Boxes which appeared with CP2017?
Normally lower Breakpoints inherit the content from the highest breakpoint, but that seems to have been overridden when creating the projects. You will have to use the option "Text auf alle Ansichten anwenden ", but for each text container individually in that case. I hope the object styles have been set up correctly in your theme. Find and Replace is another possibility of course.
