Can a template be copied?

I have created a template to be used in my confluence space. I would like to copy this template to be used to create another template that has the same look and feel but perfoms another function. Is there a way to copy templates so they can be edited?

It's possible to copy a template, but it's a little complicated. Are you running Confluence Server? You'll need to install the Confluence Source Editor plugin.

Then, edit the Template, and you will see a <> symbol in the upper right of the editor.

Click that and copy the entire text.

Next, Create a new blank template and save it.

Then, click edit again, and there will be the <> symbol in the upper right corner of the editor again. Click there, then paste the text that you copied before over the existing text (you can delete it first, or select everything and paste).

Click Apply, and now the new template should be a duplicate of the old one, and you can edit as necessary.
