How do I get the static contents of a list?

I have been trying to add only the contents of a list when I add it to a list, not a linked version of that list that changes whenever I change that list.

I have tried the call function, but changing the original list still changes the list added to the other list.

Hi, welcome to the Snap! Forum.

typewriter script pic will make a shallow copy of your list. "Shallow" means that the toplevel list is different, but each item is shared:

To make a deep copy, so that items of items of ... to any depth are separate, use the RESHAPE block:

("Dimensions of" is one of the options in the "length of" block.)

I just the simple id of block to make copies


deep copies, not shallow copies :wink:
