Copy notes "Easily" between several topics (i.e. Template)

I have a template I wish to use within the notes feature.  Unlike many of the other areas of the product (e.g. Pasting Properties, Changing Formatting, etc) where you can select a group and perform a function on all of them I can't seem to paste the same note across several topics.

Why would I want to do this?  I have a template that I've begun using to capture details within the notes section and I wish to re-use it across several topics.  However it appears that no matter how many topics I select, when I ask to paste the note it only performs the action on 1 single topic.  So I have to do it manually across each one.

You could set up a topic with the notes template and save it as a map part. Then all you need to do is click on this whenever you want to insert a new topic with the notes template.

This of course is based on the assumption that you know in advance where you need to put these topics, or at least that you can add these topics as you want to use them. I don't think there is an easy way to do a mass copy and paste of the note itself if you want to add it to multiple topics after they have been created.

It might be worth approaching Olympic Limited to see if this is a feature they could add to their MAP add-in for MindManager: https://www.olympic-limited.co.uk/

Thanks for your reply Alex!

The map parts is exactly how I've been doing some of the newer topics.  Thanks for confirming my experience as not something I've overlooked.

The MAP add-in is a lifesaver for sure!  It's saved me in several situations in similar situations.

Cheers!
