Upon discovering that I need to run a row action with multiple actions, I found that all the work I've put into setting up my drawer will be lost upon changing action type to "Run Multiple Actions". It would be great to have an option to bring into Run Multiple Actions the current single action.

Pat, totally agree, we've experienced this ourselves and are working on making it so that converting from single actions to Multiple Actions brings over what you already were doing before --- especially Drawers and Popups.

This is a hack.  But you can go to the xml and recover your original Drawer definition and move it to the section where the drawer is defined as part of the mutliple actions.  I face the same thing with popups.

Yes yes, thanks for mentioning Rob, this is what all of us developers do right now to convert to Run Multiple Actions --- go to XML, grab the <popup> node, and move it over inside of your new <actions/> node, e.g.

ORIGINAL (run single action, type Popup)

<action type="popup">
    <popup title="Opp Details">
          ...
    </popup>
</action>

RUN MULTIPLE ACTIONS

<action type="multi">
    <action type="createRow" ... />
    <action type="showPopup">
       <popup title="Opp Details">
          ...
       </popup>
    </action>
</action>

So you basically want to copy the <popup> node from the Original over into the <popup> node for the new one.

Happy to report that this was implemented in the Superbank release, as Pat Vachon pointed out.
