Re-using forms in other programs

Discuss OrbForms Designer and PocketC Architect

I have a form pair that I wrote to edit categories.
With very minor modications they can be used in my new program.

I see that I can copy source modules, but is there a way I can take a full form (controls and source), and insert it into my new project?

There is no direct way to copy forms between projects. The easiest thing to do would be:
1. Create a new empty form in the new project
2. Close the project
3. Manually copy the form declaration from the old .orb file to the new one, making sure that all the names and ids are still unique.
