Thunkable Blocks Overview

An app is simply a sequence of events. The best apps define an elegant sequence of events that happen without the user even noticing. A great sign in flow, for example, can happen in seconds, but the logic and sequence behind them is a work of art that has been iterated on many times.
This is where Thunkable blocks come in. Thunkable Blocks are the building blocks of a great experience for your app users. Every component has its own set of blocks to start or trigger an event and set and change properties.
They can be connected to a commonly used set of blocks that range from opening screens, setting up logic, reformatting data or simplifying code.

Duplicating Blocks

You can use copy-and-paste keyboard shortcuts to duplicate blocks within a project.
To duplicate a block:
  1. 1.
    Click on a single block or block combination to select it.
  2. 2.
    Simultaneously press ⌘ + C (Ctrl + C for non-macOS environments) to copy.
  3. 3.
    Either on the same screen or a different screen within the same project, simultaneously press ⌘ + V (Ctrl + V for non-macOS environments) to paste.
If you duplicate a block that refers to a component, feature, or variable from another screen, you must correct this.
You can only copy-and-paste blocks within the same project. You cannot copy-and-paste blocks between projects.
