Copy Paste from Subset Editor to Excel

Copy paste from Subset editor to excel via PA web is not available. This feature is requested by the user as it makes it simple for real time analysis. It makes it simple to copy paste dimension elements when the entire snapshot is not needed.

    As noted above, this ability already exists on the left hand side via Ctrl-C. We will also add a context menu to make this more obvious.

    Hi Christopher,

    With respect to the left hand side of the set editor - are you using the keyboard shortcut to copy (ctrl-v) and then paste to Excel? Which browser are you using? In Firefox, I am able to copy from the Set Editor (left and right sides) in Planning Analytics Workspace to Excel.

    To be specific: You CAN copy/paste from the "Current Set" (right-hand side of the Set Editor window). You CANNOT however, copy from the "Available Members" (left-hand side of the Set Editor window).
    The scenario provided is just one example of the need to copy/paste elements, not just into/out of the Set Editor, but throughout the PAW interface. The navigation window is another example of this missing feature.
