Duplicate and entity?

Is there a way to duplicate an entity? Copy or Save As?

I have an entity with a number of fields, and I would like to have copies with minor changes to a few of the fields.

Not yet :)

I guess it will become easier to implement once 2sxc 7.3 is out when everything is angularjs instead of webforms. but ATM not on our list.

I imagine going to "Replace with other content" and being able to check a box "Clone entity".

This would be quite useful, because many times our users don't want to edit all instances of an entity site-wide. They just want to clone a content entity so the changes only reflect in that instance of the app.

You should check out version 8

copy-entity feature
copy-entity in replace-with-existing

@nokiko, that's good news! Will definitely check it out. Is 8 pretty stable with the latest version of DNN?

Yeah I have tried it as clean install and it looks very stable. Have not tried an update yet. You will have to get used to it as the UI is also completely redone so it looks different in the beginning but is works faster and smoother in the whole editing department
