Hi Eric,

Can't find in the IDE clone a substack. Do you mean write a script?

Hi Jim,

1. Clone the substack (it will be a mainstack named copy of <substack
2. set it as a substack of another mainStack
3. Change its name (be careful with conflicts when 2 stacks/substacks
have the same name)

Hope this helps.
