Using the Clipboard

25 Jan 2019

The Scriptworks Clipboard allows the portability to save blocks which can then be used throughout the project.

The Clipboard keeps the saved blocks across a user’s login sessions. It will even keep its contents for the project even after logout.

How to access the Clipboard

The clipboard icon is located at the top right corner of the workspace as seen below:

Blocks can be dragged and dropped from a workspace into the Clipboard.

Then the block or set of blocks are then shown in the Clipboard.

This will not remove any wrapped Blocks or block sequences from the workspace.

When the Clipboard has blocks copied into it, the Clipboard icon will change from a blank clipboard to a clipboard icon with a block in it.

This is an indicator to remind users that there are items on the clipboard.


The blocks stored in the Clipboard can be viewed and accessed by clicking on the Icon in the top right corner of the Workspace. Then the Clipboard interface will appear which includes blocks or block sequences independently displayed.


Blocks can be dragged from the Clipboard interface to the desired location in the workspace to build up test cases or functions.
