    I’ve just upgraded to v5.3.5.

    When I duplicate a record now, I lose the links in that record that link the record to other forms. Is this a bug? I have not experienced this behaviour before.

    So now, when I duplicate a record, I have to manually recreate the links in that record.

    Hoping that my post makes sense.

    Hmm… I did work on that code before because it wasn’t copying over the links in a many-to-many configuration.

    What’s the Link Type you’re using. If it’s One to Many, then it won’t copy the links.

    Thanks Brendan, it looks like it’s a “Many to Many” link. Used to work before…

    Hi John,

    I just tested it with a Many to Many Link to Form and Tap Forms is still redoing the links in the copy when I duplicate the parent record.

    Perhaps you’re duplicating the child record? It would seem that duplicating the child record does not maintain the relationships to its parent records. I’ll have to look into that.

    No, please don’t.

    I use the duplicate to create a duplicate record without the child links.
    you know, if one wants this the other one wants that….

    We’re not going to fight over this are we Leo? ;-)
