Qlik Sense How To Cut/Paste Object And Keep Same Object ID?

My question is in regards to once objects have been tied to a mashup. If I want to move an object to a different sheet on the app, the object ID changes when I cut and paste the object, and the mashup link is broken. Is there anyway to either keep the object ID and move the object to a different sheet or if you save the app once the object ID has changed, to view what the ID once was?

Try adding the object to the library and use it in other sheets. That should keep the ID same.

Basically you want a linked object through out your app. By adding to the library it holds one copy and and you can add it to any sheet and that will have same object id.

In QlikSense there are Master-Items that should work the same, just drag and drop a Visualization for example into the Master-Items and it is linked to it.

You can then drag and drop the all the same Visualization on every sheet you want to.

Settings are made inside the Master-Items section.
