Entity clone module
This module was last tested on the 5th December 2018, on Drupal 8.6.3 with DX8 5.2 using version 8.x-1.0-alpha2 of the module.
Currently there are some issues when using Entity clone with DX8.
When cloning an entity that has a layout canvas, parent entities will share the same layout canvas entity and will override each other. To resolve this please follow the steps in the usage section.
The DX8 layout canvas field is an entity reference to a 'Layout canvas' entity and should always be a one to one relationship between itself and the parent entity. Therefore you need to set the 'Layout canvas' entity to be cloned automatically when cloning an entity that has a layout canvas field attached.
Configure Entity Clone settings
- Navigating to Configuration > Content authoring > Entity clone settings
- Check the options 'Checkboxes default value' and 'Hide checkboxes' for the Layout Canvas entity.
- Apply the following patch to the Entity Clone module, which resolves an issue when cloning an entity with a DX8 layout canvas.
If you don't set these settings and apply the patch, parent entities will share the same Layout canvas entity and will override each other. You can find out more about this issue from the Entity Clone module issue queue.
