another helpful feature when bulding a UI is to copy and paste UI elements (grids, button, images ...) from one screen to another. also to other groups and panels. Is this feature on the todo list and when will it be ready?

Definitely on the todo list, no idea yet when we can get to it

This is really a MUST have. Spending hours doing the same thing over and over...

Either copy-paste or duplicate of a single item is required...

Thank you all for this great product.

Has there been any progress on this? It would speed up creation a lot. Re-creating things every time can get painful....

Does the Professional designer offer this feature?

Professional Designer does not have this feature either.
Development/Maintenance has dropped to almost zero, so realistically don't expect it to come in the foreseeable future.

Thanks for the update. That is too bad because it would be very nice to have that feature. (I even looked at copying sections of the XML code to do this (re-naming pieces) but that looked like it would be too much trouble in the long run.)

The following is just a couple of suggestions/questions in light of the current times. No offence is meant to anyone. Below is just my opinion.

Does the professional designer still sell many copies? Are people buying it? Just a suggestion but if it was cheaper, maybe more of us "non-professionals" might consider it.... right now it's a bit out of my price range. I would love to use it but can't really afford it.

I also wonder if there has been much development on the hardware box/appliance? The prices on this type of hardware (embedded Linux) has dropped radically and power of them increased in recent years. So the box should probably drop in price as well. With the Vera lite and the Smartthings hubs being at aprox $100 (US), it makes it hard to consider the Openremote box.

I am a very big fan of Openremote. Having tried many other of the open source tools (OpenHab and ComfortClick to name two) and I keep coming back to Openremote. It feels like home automation solutions are just about to emerge into a much bigger entity, it would be nice to see Openremote keep up with the times. In the US, Home Depot, Lowes and Comcast are all jumping into it (home automation) and it looks like Apple and Google are soon to follow. It feels like Openremote could be part of this, if things were done correctly.

So, thank you to everyone that has helped developed Openremote over the years and please don't give up on the project. It is a good one.

There is the template method that avoids having to redo the panels.But the problem it is because it is necessary to replace every sensor and embellishes with images that goes with it!!

Openremote is a powerful interface but it's a pity fast limited by the options designer
