Copy Rows 2020 Web client bug

    Hi All

    Anyone else having issues with this?

    If I do select more, check the box at top of grid (e.g. in sales lines) and copy, I get 50 rows, scroll down, select all, copy rows I get 100 records, so i have to scroll to the very last record which takes forever. (keyboard shortcut to go to last record in list does not work either). We have blanket sales orders with 100's of lines and it's very cumbersome to work with. (Yes, I know it's loading data in pages, but when a user clicks select all, they expect that, not select what's been paged through)

    Regards

    Mark

    Hello Mark,
    Yes, we see the same results in 2020 Wave 2.  I agree if you select all the user expects ALL not some.

    CTRL End does bring us to the bottom of the list though.

    Thanks Ryan

    What do you do you actually select before pressing Ctrl-End?

    I did some more testing.
    • Selecting the arrow at the left of the row and  using Ctrl-End does not work
    • Selecting the 3 vertical dots works, BUT you have to use hit Esc to get rid of the context menu
    • Selecting any field does work, Just need to be careful if you select an editable field (just need to be careful, as you're now in edit mode)
    Unfortunately none of this solves the problem. I still get 60 rows after doing Ctrl-End, Select All, Copy

    Regards

    Hello Mark,
    To get it to copy all rows is very clumsy.
    Clicking on the arrow or the 3 dots does allow me to use CTRL End to get to the end of the list.

    Coping all the rows does require a dance of scrolling though. Either way I had to scroll up or down

    What deployment of Business Central are you using?
    • Public Cloud
    • Private Cloud
    • On Premise
    You may have more configuration options with On Premise or Private Cloud.

    I have tried both On-prem and public cloud with the same results

    Mark,

    Have you tried using either "Edit in Excel" or "Open in Excel"?  This may be an extra step if you are wanting to copy the rows to another document in BC, but at least you will get everything.  You generally have to click More Options > Page > Edit in Excel when working with the rows of an Order.  Test this out and see if it will work in your situation.  Even if it is an extra step to copy and paste from Excel back into BC, at least you'll be sure you have all the records you want.

    Thanks Ben

    Unfortunately the thing we need it on the most in Blanket sales orders and that happens to be one of the few places that has no open in excel
