On my contact lens tab I currently have several sections for trial lenses and one for final cl rx which populates Contact Lens Rx 1 on the Prescription tab. I'd like to add a final cl rx 2 and final cl rx 3 to my contact lens tab which would populate Contact Lens Rx 2 and 3 on the Prescription tab. I was able to do this with spectacle rx's 1 through 4 on my refraction tab that populate Spectacle Rx's 1 through 4 on the prescription tab, but I just can't seem to figure it out for contacts. A search of the forum found some mentions of populating cl rx's 2 and 3 but no mention of how to make it happen. Any help much appreciated!

It is fairly simple if you have edited the med rec template before.. You can go into edit mode, select the current button that populates to CLRX 1, Copy the field, then right click on a blank area and select "paste field (create new)" which will copy settings from existing button but create a new button with a unique field ID, then go into the button settings and for each cell under the Actions column add an underscore then a 2, and then repeat process for CLRX 3 button. See photos below for reference.
Thanks Frisco, after much trial and error I was finally able to make this work. I was just logging in this evening to answer my question in case anyone else was having trouble with this and noticed you had answered it some time ago. I wish I'd checked sooner! My solution is different from yours but still works for some reason. I used LTF rather than LTRX and put what you have in the action column into the description column. No doubt my solution will stop working at some time in the future after installing an update, but at least now I'll know how to fix it.
