Reuse, Copy content

Hello, I've seen the new features (Reuse > Download/Copy content) and it sounds to be awesome, but I have a problem: unlike what I read (, it seems I can't neither "copy a Multiple Choice from an Interactive Video, and paste it into an already existing Course Presentation" nor "do the same for a standalone Multiple Choice". Pretty sure I misunderstood something.

Anyway, real case ( I'm revising a Question Set (QS) with too much stuff inside (True/False, MC, D&D, Fill the Blanks and another D&D). It'd be better to split it into more learning activities: 1 QS with True/False and MC, and 3 different "objects": 1 D&D, 1 Fill the Blanks and 1 final D&D.

Assuming I can do in QS what I've read in the above mentioned example about Interactive Video, this is what I did:

  • I went into my WordPress site, H5P Content Add New... and there I created a(n empty) Fill the Blanks.
  • Here, I pasted the content I had copied from QS (Reuse > Copy content; but I'm afraid I had copied the entire QS content).
  • Eventually, I found out the my content type was changed from Fill the Blanks to Question Set (that is the same "object" I would have obtained uploading a downloaded .h5p file, instead of creating a new one).


So, where am I wrong?

  • Can I copy just one piece of (and not the entire) content? If yes, how?
  • How is it that pasting the content I've copied the content type was changed from one (FTB) to another (QS)?

Thank you

Hi akud,

For stand alone contents there is only one copy/paste button which is located just below the title. For more complicated content types there is a copy/paste button for the whole content and a separate copy/paste button which depends on which content you are copying from. In your case the copy/paste button for the FTB, D&D etc. is located on the right side of the editor for that specific content. I've attached screenshots to better explain this.

For your second question I assume you used the copy button for QS not FTB.
