Copy nodes on mobile


Please consider adding the ability to copy nodes (and their children) on mobile. On desktop this can be done by Ctrl-dragging a node, but on mobile this seems to be impossible.

This is important to me because I have a daily template I copy each morning. I’m not always at my desktop when I want to set up my day.

Perhaps this could be accomplished using an active similar to “Move” - a button that allows you to search for the node that will be the parent of the new copy.

Thanks for considering my suggestion!


Yes I want to do exactly this too! :slight_smile:


Got it!

Dynalist team, thanks so much for creating the shortcut for duplicating nodes! This is a big help to me.

I’m able to make the duplicate shortcut work on my Android phone, too. Here’s how:

  • On the desktop, create a shortcut for Duplicate Node. I used Ctrl-Shift-D.
  • On the phone, you may need to install a keyboard that supports your shortcut’s control keys, like Hacker’s Keyboard.
  • On the phone, go to Chrome and open the Dynalist website (this doesn’t work in the Android app yet)
  • Put the cursor on a node.
  • Type your shortcut, e.g. Ctrl-Shift-D.
  • Voila! The node and its children are duplicated.

Thanks again!
