One IE in multiple folders

January 2016 hint

You can use the same IE (image, topic etc.) in different/multiple folders by a simple copy/paste function

Here is how you do it:

  1. Find the IE and select it

  2. Copy it by pressing Ctrl+C on the keyboard.

  3. Select the target folder

  4. Paste by pressing Ctrl+V

This will create a link to the IE located in the database. Any change you make on the IE (regardless of which folder you enter the IE from) will have impact on the same IE in all the other folders.


Please note that this is not the same as the “New Copy of…” function which creates a “physical” copy, where you can make changes in the “original” IE without affecting the “new copy”.
