Copy/Paste Dialog Nodes

Building repetitive nodes on large-scale WCS implementations is very time consuming. If nodes could be effectively copy/pasted (ie replicate an existing node to several hundred other locations in a dialog flow), development time would be massively decreased.

    Agree with Michel below - need the ability to export all or part of a dialog tree to another workspace

    You can duplicate a node and all of it's children by accessing the Duplicate function from a node's overflow menu.

    Hasn't this been implemented in the meantime?

    What would also be great is to be able to export part of dialog tree and being able to import it in an other workspace.m, for instance for ongoing maintenance of multilingual chatbots.

    Updates in one language need to be reflected in the others. Now this is only possible by manually recreating the tree in the other languages which is of course error-prone.
