Select a 1 or 2 lanes in the existing swimlane, press crtl/cmd - d to duplicate them. Drag them out of the swimlane and drop. They drag them onto the title area of the swimlane to group these new lanes into the swimlane.

@David Benson []

I am trying to understand swimming pool (or pooling swimlanes) for a requirement.

Is this the same thing? 

I am not able to duplicate or drag onto another swimlane.

@Ingvar Örn Could you please send a screenshot of what this is and how it worked for you.

Any help is highly appreciated.

Thanks & Regards,
Vinay R

1. Select or highlight the whole pool

2. Click on cogwheel / settings icon on the small popup menu

3. Select the number of swimlanes

My comment was perfectly polite and I said nothing about rules. I simply suggested that that threads might be clearer if limited to the tool that the tag of the question relates to.
