  • Duplicated PDF templates are emptied

    Hello everyone

    I don't know if this is a mistake or intentional.

    I often copy an existing PDF template because I need a similar one for another entity.
    I have noticed that the content is then deleted.

    Select an existing PDF template, via the menu -> Duplicate
    And as soon as you change the entity type, the content and the header are deleted.
    However, CSS, margin data and page orientation remain.

    Is this intentional or not?

    Hi, This is intentional.

      I see the reason for intentionally deleteing the content of the copied template, but I also often copy templates from one entity to another. For example an invoice template is very similar to a sales order or quote template.
      Sure, the field names are different but I am aware of that.
      I usually copy the content from a finished template to the new one after duplicating. I put in the (wrong) tagged code and alter the tags referring to the current entity..
      So actually I have a wrong tagged template after duplicating, but the procedure is the same as it would be with a fully duplicated template, only one manual step between.

        Thank you, that answers my question.
        Now I know that it is intentional.‚Äč
