Hit the plus sign once, then paste. Sentinel will create the rest of the rows as needed. Just like Excel.

I have tried to do a batch transfer it appears that you can only do 1 frequncy at a time?
You can't paste frequencies in the department name.

You have to first create a department with a name, you have alredy done that, then in the left pane click on that department name. In the right pane that then are created you click on the plus sign to add one line.

In that frequency field you can paste hundreds of frequencies you have copied and Sentinel will add rows automaticly to handle all frequencies. Then copy the name tags and paste into the first lines name field and it will fill all lines automaticly.

The number of name tag cells have to match exactly with the number of lines already created or you will get that error that the size doesn't match.
You can of course start with copying name tags if you wish, it doesn't matter.

If you would like to change something else like the delay time. then change one lines delay and then copy that and then mark all the lines you wish to change and paste. You can mark the first line and then hold down shift and mark the last line and you can add and delete marking anywhere by holding down Ctrl while clicking individual lines. Standard Windows procedures.

If you mark whole lines by clicking in the line numberings you can paste that into Notepad and use its search&replace if you would like to alter a lot of frequency name tags that you perhaps have named Channel 1 460.000mhz Channel 2 460.100mhz and so on and replace with Ch.1 460.000MHz Ch2. 460.100MHz

It's usually easier if you import a copy into excel and do edits there as it will keep the format intact and are not se easy to make mistakes. Then copy the whole thing and paste back into Sentinel, or perhaps first save as a text file and then copy.
