Remove

If the Confirm Remove Sheet Object command in the dialog is enabled (default) the user will be asked to confirm this command before deleting the sheet object(s).

Activate All

Makes every sheet object on the sheet active. Another way of obtaining a similar result is to click and drag a rectangle around those sheet objects that should be activated, or to Shift-click them. This command can also be invoked by the following keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+A.

Search

Opens the Text search box, provided that a searchable sheet object (list box or opened multi box) is active. This command can also be invoked by the following keyboard shortcut: Ctrl+F.

Fuzzy Search

Copy mode

Switches from logic mode to copy mode. Values clicked while in copy mode are copied to Clipboard without changing the logical state of the QlikView run. When copy mode is chosen, the Clipboard Copy List dialog opens. In this dialog the copied fields are shown. The format of the copy list can also be set here.
