Friday Fact: New Logic App Designer (in GA) Enables Copy and Paste Actions

When working with Logic Apps Consumption, you can choose between the Legacy Designer and the Generally Available Designer, aka the new Logic App Designer.

The Generally Available Designer offers some great features, such as the ability to copy and paste actions, which the Legacy Designer lacks.

But how do you use this feature?

To switch from the Legacy Designer to the Generally Available Designer, click on the green marker labeled Generally Available Designer. A message will appear to redirect you;

Make sure to save all your changes first, or you will lose your progress.

Once the new designer opens, you’ll notice a visual difference. In this post, we’ll focus on the copy-and-paste feature, though there’s much more to explore.

Right-click on any action to see the options to copy or delete.

Select copy, then move to one of the plus symbols to add another action. You’ll then have the option to paste the action.

Notice that the content of the action remains intact, containing the name (that you can and should change later), the type, and the value.

If you change your mind, right-click the pasted action and select delete, or click del on your keyboard; you will be prompted to confirm your decision.

Alternatively, you can click on an action and press CTRL+C on your keyboard to copy it. The process for pasting and deleting remains the same. Note that you can also paste actions between other actions within the workflow.

Remember to save your workflow. If you switch back to Legacy Designer without saving, you will lose your progress.

Now that you know about this handy feature, there’s more to discover about the Generally Available Designer. We’ll cover that in another video.

I hope you enjoyed this Friday’s Fact, and we will see you at the next one.
