          Hi semsem,

          assuming you assign the menu to canvas properly and you have text_item1 and text_item2. Now what you have to do ?

          select the text of text_item1 then right click out side the item (any where in canvas) and you will see the popup menu then click on copy and then click on text_item2 then again right click out side the item (any where in canvas) and click Paste..

          You have done ;)

          Better to assign the menu each text item then copy and paste will be more easier.

          Hamid

              i am sorry , i did not set "menu item type" property to "magic" , i left it "plain" , so it did not work properly . i just choosed "copy" from the "magic item" property . that is why it did not work .

              it's my fault , sorry for that
              thanks a lot
