    Question Copy Forms that can be edited without modifying original form

    I want to copy a form so I do not have to create a new form. I want to modify the new form but, when I do, the original form is also being modified. How can i prevent this?

    How did you copy it exactly? I've done this before and the original one did not change, did you get propmted to rename it as CopyOfFormName?

    I just right-click Copy and right-click Paste. I seems that the form copy and the original are linked together.

    That's strange, I literally just did this to double check, did you copy and past within the navigation bar? Look at the properties on the copied form to see if anything sticks out.

    So I just thought of this, all of your object will have the same name, is this what you are talking about? You can change the name to make it something else
