Where to find the clipboard and enable it

 

"Show clipboard" is located under the list of files in the filelist.  If you have it turned on in the list module, it will also be on for your files.

When checked on you will see a box at the base of the files, very similar to the one you'd see list.

Gathering Files

What do I mean by gathering files using Typo3's clipboard?  Using the clipboard feature you can copy several files from several folders to insert into another folder.  

So go to a folder you wish to copy/move files from.

Continue adding until you have what you need. 

Go to the folder where you want to paste them. 

NOTE: although you can have files, pages and content elements in one panel of the clipboard, you can only past what is appropriate for where you are pasting them to; files into a folder in filelist, content/pages onto/into a page in the list module.

NOTE: if you are copying make sure that it is set to "Copy Elements".  

Using the clpboard's panels

You can also use the clipboard's panels to assist in organizing what you are gathering then copying/moving.

Say you have content from two folders that you want to insert onto a third.

You can place the files from one folder into one of the clipboard's panels.

Then you can place the files from the second folder into one of the other panels.

Now you can go to a third folder and paste in the files from both panels.  NOTE: remember to change the "Move elements " to "Copy elements" if you are copying.  Typo3 may revert back to it's default of "Move elements".

Now click on Clipboard #2 (or what ever panel has the second set of files) and you can paste this into the same folder.

Pasting the files

Go to the folder where you want to paste in the files.  If you also have pages/content in the clipboard, Typo3 will ignore those when you paste into a folder.

You will  need to confirm the paste.

All the files will be gathered in the folder.
