    Good request - there are a few variations on this theme.

    I also think some kind of alias/shadow/clone/parent-child function would be massively useful.

    Not sure to understand, what similarity is there between ""shadow copy", templates (as in PHPStorm or such) and word-like Styles?

    If you change "the original", does it apply to already-existing copies? (as it would if you update an Object Class for instance)? Or only the next copies?

    Edit: P.S. I mentioned word-like styles because you can link styles between them, such as defining that after "Title1" for example, when you press Enter then it switch to "chapeau" style , then "Title 2", then "Normal2", then "bullet 2", etc. Kind of template.

    Papa, it's only visual copy of a bullet (text content). When you edit the original – all shadow copies updates. I need it to create different lists of content from the same sources.

    Have a look in the request history, there are many requests of this same concept explained with many different words as: "aliases", "instances", "clones", "duplicates", etc, etc. You should also vote those requests up so give them more preponderenace! This is a key functionality that WorkFlowy is really needing to implement ASAP so we can access the same bullet points from different places in our organizational structure.

    Max, sure! 

    You can place links here, it will help a lot, because I found only a couple of similar topics and those are not exactly the same

    quite a few scenarios and preferences explored in those two. (ok, the second one is just me, but hey...)
