In Agile Requirements Designer, there are 3 ways of copying a block. They each have different levels of inheritance associated with them.
- A Clone is a direct copy of a block that continuously updates based on what the master block (the block it was copied from) state is. You may not edit this block other than to break the ‘link’ to its' master block.
- A Duplicate is a copy of a block which optionally updates after every change from its master to reflect its master's current state. You do not have to accept changes from the master block, and you may edit the block on its own.
- A Copy copies an exact replica of the master block at the time of the copy. However, it retains no link to the master and will not update based on its master block's changes. You may edit this block like any other. If you are pasting the block it will append an [n] on the title to ensure the name is unique.
