Copy and Paste

A full breakdown of MacroFactor's copy and paste functions

  1. In the Food Log, tap on the food tile of the food you want to copy.

  2. Tap “Copy” from the menu on the bottom of the screen.

  3. Paste your food wherever you’d like to paste it. Here are the paste options:

    1. Tapping the clipboard icon beside any hour on the food timeline will paste the food you’ve copied to that hour.

    2. Tapping “to now” will paste the food you’ve copied to the current date and time.

    3. Tapping “to today” will paste the food you’ve copied to the current day, at the same time of day as the instance of the food you’d copied.

    4. Tapping “to tomorrow” will paste the food you’ve copied to tomorrow, at the same time of day as the instance of the food you’d copied.

    5. Tapping “paste inline” will paste the food you’ve copied to the day you’re currently viewing, at the same time of day as the instance of the food you’d copied (note that you can navigate between days after copying a food).

    6. Tapping “multi-paste inline” will paste the food you’ve copied to the day you’re currently viewing, at the same time of day as the instance of the food you’d copied, without clearing your clipboard. So, you can navigate to another day, and paste the same food again without needing to re-copy the food. This is a useful utility for people who eat some of the same things at the same times every day. You can pre-log those items to multiple days at once, instead of needing to individually log them every day.

    7. Tapping “To Date & Time” will pull up a date and time selector, to allow you to paste the copied food to any day and time without needing to navigate between days on the food timeline.

You can copy and paste multiple foods at once using these same workflows. You can select multiple foods at once using these actions:

  1. To select multiple foods to copy and paste, just tap all of the foods you’d like to copy to select them, before selecting a paste option.

  2. You can select all of the foods under a single hour with a single tap by tapping the hour itself.

  3. You can also copy all of the foods in a single day by tapping the menu icon in the very top left corner of the food log, and then tapping “copy day.”

Once you’ve copied multiple foods, you can paste them wherever you’d like using the paste options listed above.
