I created a card with several checklists in it.

As the number of lists increased, I wanted to spin off some of them. I can convert one of the items in the checklist into a separate card, but I cannot convert the whole checklist into another card.

How can I achieve that?

The title of your question doesn't really seem to match the text. Do you want to make just the title into a new card, or do you want the checklist copied into another card? – Rich Armstrong Feb 22 '12 at 18:51
@RichArmstrong: you are right. It is not clear. I want to covert the whole checklist into a new card. – Peretz Feb 22 '12 at 23:53

Sorry, this is not possible. Though, we are working on copyable checklists, so you'd likely be able to copy the list to a new card.

You can select all the text of the checklist items, starting over the checklist to avoid the drag and drop area. Then, insert the text into a new card. Push enter on the keyboard, Trello will ask you to make single cards out of every line, say yes, then archive every second card with the c key. Voila.

The cut and paste works great. But why would you archive every second card? Perhaps it is cleaner these days (I see the answer is 4 years old) and no longer creates extra cards. – Mark Meuer Sep 16 '15 at 15:02
It used to create empty cards from the empty lines. – wackazong Jan 15 at 14:13

You can create a new card, and when adding a checklist "Copy" any checklist from the old card. Then you can go back to the original card and delete the checklist.
