Authors can easily duplicate Items in the Author API interface. Item duplication is useful, because it means authors don't have to create many similar Items from scratch. Authors can duplicate an Item, and then make minor changes to the duplicates.
In the Item Edit view, authors can duplicate Items by clicking the arrow button next to 'Save' and then clicking 'Duplicate item'. The 'Duplicate item' button can be hidden by setting
item_edit.item.duplicate.show to false.
When an Item is duplicated, its widgets are also duplicated and will receive new widget references. By default, shared passages won't be duplicated and will keep their existing widget references.
There is also the ability to duplicate shared passages. Setting
item_edit.item.duplicate.duplicate_shared_passages to true will present the user with the option to either duplicate or share passages.
