How to Copy and re-use data from the Properties Panel

Inside Spatial Manager Desktop™ there is a “hidden” option to take advantage of the data shown in the Properties Panel

By placing the cursor over any data, if CTRL + C (standard combination for “Copy”) is pressed, the corresponding data goes to the Windows clipboard and can be exploited within the same application, or any other, using “Paste” or by pressing CTRL + V

One of the practical examples of this technique would be to create a new User Data Source (UDS) based on the data of another existing UDS, which can be very long and tedious to enter (see next images)

Another example would be to Copy the extension data of a Layer (Bounding Box) in a Word document or others

Remember that if any data is not fully visible due to the width of the Properties Panel, a Tooltip will display by keeping the cursor over this data
