Clone Playlist Item

I was creating a playlist with 4 cities for weather. It would be nice if I could have setup the first one perfect, then next to the "add" "delete" buttons on the playlist there was a choice for "clone". Then that playlist item could be duplicated as another item in the playlist. Then I could open up each clone and change the city. This would also be handy for playlists with multiple news feeds.

Actually, we already have this functionality. Once you have the playlist item just the way you want it, you can select "Add" then "Copy". Go to the Placeholder you want to paste it into and then select "Add" and "Paste", and it will add the Gadget with all the predefined settings.

Sometimes it can get a tad temperamental and won't paste, but if you refresh your browser, this usually fixes the issue.

Let us know if that works for you. Thanks!

I know sometimes I run into the issue where it will not work, but if you refresh your page (be sure to save any unsaved work), it starts working after that. It is a bit of a browser glitch.


Update: My apologies, I should have stated that this continues to work in the older editor, but is not currently present in the new one. Thanks!
