    New user and a couple of things I noticed that would be nice to see in the next version.

    1. Ctrl C and Ctrl V. Yes I am old. When setting up reports. I will copy and paste objects many times. Having to use the right click really slows me down. Think of adding boxes around fields. You want to set the box up once, and then copy and resize as needed.

    2. Select all/Copy on the "configure data source command" window. Numerous times when developing reports I realize that I need to alter my query. I have to use the mouse to select all the text, right click, copy and then back into SQL to modify it. Would be nice to have a faster way of doing that.

    3. Drag and Drop of Data Explorer Fields. Yes you can drag and drop fields to the report canvas. However, there are 2 things that would be nice. First, the scroll bar resets its position so you now have to scroll through the list of fields to figure out where you last left off. Finally, there is no visual indicator such as a check mark of color to indicate that you have already added this field to the report.

    4. Suppress blank fields. This is a Crystal Reports feature that I loved (sorry..had to say it). I could create a container, stack vertically numerous fields and if any field as empty, it would hide it and move the rest up. I read the article you have on this and it does work. However, having to manually shrink all fields, then set the Can Shrink and Can Grow attribute...really cumbersome.

    Hello Brian,

    1. Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V key combinations work correctly for report items in the report designer. Please elaborate further if you experience a different behavior.

    2. and 3. You can log feature requests in our Ideas & Feedback portal. Depending on their popularity they might be implemented in a future version of the product.

    4. You can suppress blank fields using the described approach, or you can set the item's visibility via Conditional Formatting.

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items
