Work with text in windows

Wherever you can enter text in a window, you can perform many of the functions that you can perform in any text editor, such as Notepad or Microsoft Word.

Data Workbench supports basic editing features, including cut (Ctrl+x), copy (Ctrl+c), paste (Ctrl+v), undo (Ctrl+z), redo (Ctrl+Shift+z), select section (click+drag), and select all (Ctrl+a).

In addition to basic copying and pasting of text, you can copy and paste text within and between configuration files ( .cfg).
