Examine Questions, Batch Edit
When users clone items, either a single item or through Batch Edit, they now have the option to copy the comments (excluding the External ID). When the Comments option is selected, the comments are transferred to the newly cloned items. Any External IDs from the original item are not tranferred to the newly cloned items.

On the Manage | Settings | Configuration | References tab, users can now configure the #EDITION field for book references. Users can optionally make the #EDITION field mandatory by selecting the Edition check box. When the field is set to mandatory, warning messages appear and users are prevented from saving the reference if the edition field is empty.
By default, all new projects include the #EDITION field along with the title of the book as #TITLE_EDITION. You can modify existing projects to include the edition field.
The reference that is produced lists the Source (book title), Edition (value entered) edition. The Edition field may be a max of 7 characters in length.
If the Edition field is left blank, only the book title is listed in the reference that is produced.
Alternately, you can change the book reference to #TITLE (#EDITION).
The reference lists the Source (book title) Edition (value entered).
If the Edition field is left blank, the book title is listed with an empty set of parentheses for edition in the reference that is produced.
The book reference Edition field will appear on all pages where references are displayed.
See the 22.214.171.124 References Tab topic for details.
Manage | Settings | References tab
The list of references on the Manage References page now includes the edition field. Book references list the book edition if one is assigned to the reference. If no edition is assigned to the book reference the field is blank. All other reference types list NA because the field is not applicable to those reference types.
The Add Reference and Edit Reference pages for Book references now include the Edition field.

Existing book references can be modified to add the Edition field if the #Edition field has been added to the Manage | Settings | Configuration References tab. Once the #EDITION field has been added for book references in the project, all existing book references in the project will list the Edition field as blank. Users must modify the existing book reference individually or via Batch Edit to apply the Edition to the book reference.
