Copy Structure

For the most up-to-date documentation, please visit

If certain node structures are to be reused in different places, this plugin allows copy & paste (also in other main tabs). When inserting, you can decide whether all levels should be inserted recursively. It can also be decided whether the asset assignments and/or the node information fields should be copied. Alternatively, the structure can also be exported to an Excel file.
