Replacing an MD4-5, MD4-7, or MD4-10 with a different size MD4?

Is there a simple way to replace an MD4 with one of a different size without having to manually move all of the logic, images, and display screens?      Is there a best practice for doing this?

If you are upgrading all of your machines to use the different size MD4, then the quickest way is probably be to add the other master to the project file. 

-drag all the contents of the application across

-create blank display pages on the new master, mark all layers on the corresponding old page and copy paste from it. You'll of course need to rearrange the contents to fit the new page. 

If you plan on running multiple project files, with MD4 size as a difference between them, it can be worth the time to organize large portions of the application in external functions, to reuse these between multiple project files.
