  • Sometimes you'll want to take content from one tree, and move a copy to another tree. That's why Zingtree gives you the option to Duplicate nodes in your current tree, Copy nodes from one tree to another, or Delete an entire branch of nodes. These features were formerly called the Prune tool. 

    Duplicating Nodes
