Copy and paste

Copy and paste questions is a productivity aid. Very often there is something on one question that you don't want to type again such as  perhaps similar question text or options. You can copy and paste a question including its photo, question text and multi choice or text box answers. You can also copy all the questions on a page or book. 

You can paste the question or questions onto the same page or book as the original, a different page or book on the same document, a different document (by closing that one and opening another one and pasting) or you can copy from a library to a test and vice versa.
