 +====== How to: Copy an Element ======
 +===== Quick Steps =====
 +  * Place your cursor on the row for the element you wish to copy, and press <F2>
 +OR
 +  * With your cursor anywhere:
 +    * Right-click on the element options column to the far-left of the element that you wish to copy 
 +    * Choose <Copy>
 +
 +===== Detailed steps =====
 +If you need to provide data for repeated elements, you can copy an element as many times as you need. 
 +
 +To do this, either:
 +
 +  * Place your cursor on the row for the element you wish to copy
 +{{:howto:copyanelement_1.jpg?300|}}
 +  * and press <F2>
 +{{:howto:copyanelement_2.jpg?300|}}
 +
 +Or:
 +  * With your cursor anywhere:
 +    * Right-click on the element options column to the far-left of the element that you wish to copy 
 +{{:howto:copyanelement_ind1.jpg|}}
 +
 +    * Choose <Copy>
 +{{:howto:copyanelement_2.jpg?300|}}
 +
 +__Notes__
 +
 +  * If you copy a parent element (with subelements) the copy will include all appropriate subelements). 
 +  * If you copy a subelement, only that subelement will be repeated.
 +  * **//In a template//**: if you would like a template to always prompt for a repeated element/vocabulary, you can copy that element/vocabulary in a template—the copied element/vocabulary will always appear as repeated whenever that template is accessed.
 +  * **//In a record//**: if you need to repeat an element/vocabulary for a particular record, you can copy the element/vocabulary as many times as you need for that record—the copied element/vocabulary will only appear as repeated for that particular record.
