Hello there,
A question about WPML + ACF & WP Blocks.
I have a post template with WP blocks & ACF fields, but I can't make work the WPML option "Copy" to copy an ACF value to my post translations.
Although I have the "Copy" option configured, in the translations of my post the ACF option to modify keeps appearing, is this normal?
Some idea why I can't make the ACF option "Copy" to my post translations?
Thank you in advance.-

Hi there,

If you are using teh manual translation mode to translate the page containing the custom field in question, then you need to follow the steps below and you will have the optoin to change it if needed because you use teh manual method.

Here is how the manual method works:

https://wpml.org/documentation/translating-your-contents/using-different-translation-editors-for-different-pages/

But if you use the translation editor to translate the page, ytou should not see the option in the translation editor if you set it to copy. But from the screenshot you shared it seems that you use the manual method.

Thank you.
