Within Designer, easily duplicate a class, and specify a different name.
Hi Everyone! We just released Duplicate Classes. You can now quickly duplicate classes and make a few tweaks, without messing up your original class, or creating a combo class. Read more here.
Super exciting! Great update. Thanks for the hard work and listening to the community :)
You're my heroes, thanks so much for improving this product!
Great Stuff. Already used this.
There have been multiple times in my long history of using Webflow that I've needed to quickly and easily re-create all the characteristics/settings of a class.
Normally, one would simply assign a subclass to the class to differentiate it from it's parent and voilà... a psuedo-"copy" of the class has been created. The only issue, though, is there are multiple specific situations where a unique copy of a class would be useful without having to use a subclass:
1. The requirement to use interactions with classes and not subclass/ID selectors. This struggle would be completely resolved.2. Countless custom code opportunities, such as linking directly to a tab that has a unique class name.3. Experimenting with a design direction at a class level branching from a more complex starting point without having to undo all your experiments when you are done (one could even rename their new & beautiful class to replace the class from which they branched).
I've attached an example of how this could work (also doable via the Style Manager). The duplicated class would have an appended "-2" similarly to how Webflow handles duplicate id's. Thank you for developing this idea.
Please also consider a "grouping of multiple classes" function into one new class. It would really help with cleaning up, organizing classes once you're deep into a design iteration.
It is really a must. time saver and wise DRY feature (don't repeat yourself)
indispensable · absolutely necessary · please note
This would definitely ease the process of changing some styles much easier.
OH GOD YES PLEASE.
it would be a big timesaver
Ooh Yes indeed.
Yes yes yes please. I need this. Most of the time I have to rewrite a given class that has similar styles but need different changes for animation and so on.
I think this one is crucial, please add this feature :)!
This can be one solution to the combo class restriction, please add it to the designer!
Come on already with this guys! It causes me much grief and it's probably because I don't know how to do something to work around it but this is long overdue already. Please change it to "planned"..
Yes! Would love this! I've come across this as a problem a fair few times.
