Copy data structure just like styles

If it isnt too much trouble and time consuming, can we copy data structure (i.e. blocks from the data types tab) across apps, just like the recently added copy styles functionality.
The action can ignore custom fields but copy the rest. Creating the same structure in another app is quite time consuming if we work on several apps which use features of similar type.

I’d rather copy one type and the custom fields no?

I didn’t get what u meant. Just to elaborate my point further:

For example a type is Message having Fields (name->text, cell-> number, thread -> conversation). Copying to a different app should copy Message (name->text, cell->number) but not thread->conversation unless it also has a type conversation since its not a generic object like text and number

Then this is a bug and a bug report is the way to go.

Have you tried?

yep, can see the copy but paste doesnt work

Then this is a bug in your particular case and a bug report, as usual, is the way to go.

This is a general thing, if a feature is visible, but doesn’t work, it’s a bug.
