Edit: This was originally a request, but Stonepaw made a nice script for this here:

comicrack.cyolito.com/media/kunena/attac...eField1.3.1.crplugin


Often we need to copy/move the info from one field to another. e.g. "Copy Series Title to Alternate Series", "Copy Series to Title", etc.



Recently, we had the ISBN field introduced. I was using some other field for that purpose. Now, I would have to manually cut-paste data for this. Also, sometimes, need arises to copy the title to the alternate series, copy creator info (writer/penciller/inker) among each other, or move imprint to publisher.

To solve these issues. and to avoid the plethora of scripts that define only 2 fields at a time, I would like to request a script that gives us the option to choose a field from which we wish to copy/move the info, and the second field to which we wish to paste the info to.

Here is a mock-up:



So, any of our developer warriors coming forth for this? :unsure:

p.s. Sometimes, I wish I were not so talentless that I am, and would know how to make a simple script. All I can make is mock-ups.. :(

Could be useful, but dangerous. One could screw up their data real fast if they weren't careful

Hmm.. Well, that applies to almost everything in our lives. The more useful a thing is, the more dangerous it becomes. Still, if such a script ever sees the light of the day, it'll save a lot (yes, a biggg lot) of time & effort for guys like me.. :unsure:

Just to remember anyone: scripts also generate an undo entry. If you catch your error, simply undo :)

Yep... but I have my hands full right now (thus the delay in the progress of my two ongoing endeavors, the dupes and the scraping of series from CV). I will try to put something together, but not before next week :laugh:
