You can easily move items using Cut, Copy and Paste. This is particularly useful when moving an item across a large structure.

First, select the issue by clicking anywhere in the issue's row or using up/down on your keyboard. The selected row will be highlighted.

  • To move the item, click the Cut button  in the toolbar. Then highlight the new location you want the item and click the Paste button . The original item will be placed in the row below the selected item.
  • To create a copy of an item, click the Copy button . Then highlight the location you want the copy placed and click Paste . The copy will be placed beneath the highlighted item.

When you copy or cut issues using the toolbar or Ctrl+C / Ctrl+X (Command+C / Command+X for Mac), the selected items are placed into the clipboard. When you paste with Ctrl+V (Command+V), items are added immediately after the currently focused item.

To paste items under the currently focused item (as its children), press Ctrl+Shift+V (Command+Shift+V).

You can also cut/copy and paste multiple issues at one time. See Selecting Multiple Items for more details.

Copy / Paste Scenarios

There are two main scenarios for using the Issue Clipboard:

If you have any text selected on the page, the Copy/Cut keyboard shortcuts will operate on that text, not the items in your structure. The text will be copied to the system clipboard, and the Structure clipboard will not be affected.
