Script works (and has sense) only at meeting the following requirements:

  1. Button editing dialog is open. It can be done by executing the cm_ButtonConfig or cm_ButtonConfig2 commands (button bar editing), or by right-clicking the button bar and picking "Change..." (single button editing). Dialogs are different though very similar;

  2. The clipboard contais the button image got by right-clicking a button and picking "Copy".

It is easy to import the following command list into PowerPro. After that, if both requirements are met, in the right side of the dialog caption a small button appears. Its tooltip reminds about the button image in the clipboard. Pressing this button replaces the active button with that in the clipboard.
