Hello @vancameron,

 

since we can't see everything, i have to assume, that this is a grouped field.

If this is inside a grouped field, you cannot copy single snippets, but you can copy the parent snipped.

 

This is because some options in a group field could be linked together by its parent, like for example a repeater option.

 

For me the best practise is (if you just want a single snipped) copy the parent, drop it inside an editor and just take out the part you like.

 

If my assumption of the grouped field is wrong, i would love a bigger screenshot, to see more of the nesting.

Hi @Chris-M 

Thank you for getting back to me so promptly.

It's quite possible that the field in question is grouped. I'll be working on this later so will let you know if I am successful.

Many thanks
