I can't find the post where I've read it anymore, so can someone please be so nice and tell me again what the keyboard shortcut is that lets you copy&paste parameter in CA RA? Currently we always need to re-enter the parameters, when copying something from one action to another.
These are the shortcuts for the designer in the ROC:
Use the following keyboard shortcuts for ease of use with common operations in the designer:
Tip: To zoom, hold the Shift key and use the scroll-wheel.
I got these details for the following URL. Create Processes - CA Release Automation - 5.5.2 - CA Technologies Documentation
And holding down the shift key while pasting allows pasting of the parameters.

that was what I was looking for...didn't consider the "sometimes" that it is simply just an issue of ROC itself haha...I just tested it, I can copy with parameters when there is text around it (even only copy the parameter itself works, as long as text surrounds it), if there is only a parameter in the field and I copy it, I can't paste it...strange thing
You can successfully copy just a parameter……you just have to highlight the right parts
I wasn't able to copy a parameter, when the parameter was the only thing for example in an input field, i needed to place a dot next to it and then I was able to copy only the parameter
Like I said, it’s kinda tricky. You have to put the cursor at the end of the parameter, then left arrow two or three times – you can visually see when the parameter is correctly highlighted.
Then you can copy it.
Also, in design view, hold down ctrl + shift and then left click and holds to drag around the layout of the process or flow.
That's a good one to know - sometimes it's hard to find a background area to right-click on in a large process. Thanks for this tip!
