Can I copy and paste events from one show to another?


In COBRA Show Creator, it is possible to copy and paste events from one show script to another.


Please follow the step-by-step instructions:

1. Open the show you wish to copy the events from.

3. While holding the SHIFT button, click the last event you want to copy. This will highlight all events between the first and last selected event.

4. Right click to bring up the menu and select Copy Cues. Alternatively, you can use keyboard shortcuts to copy events. On Mac, this is Command + C and on Windows, this is Control C.
