In the field well I would find it very useful to be able to right click over an existing measure and copy/duplicate measure in order to quickly create a modified version of the original measure.

RE: Copy / Duplicate a measures from the field well

Let's take this a step further. I have used a control system programming interface where you can copy an entire folder in the programming view or visual in the GUI interface. When you paste, you have the option to "Paste Special" and under "Paste Special" you have a "Search and Replace" option.In the case of Power BI, Let's say I create a table called "Measures_Month" where I make a number of measures like "Months Total", "ACD Calls Month", "NonACD Calls Month" and "Average Calls Month", etc.Once I have made my all of Month measures and used them in my "Month" visuals, I would like to be able to copy the entire "_Measures Month" table and then right-click the white space in the Data field and select "Paste Special/Search and Replace". From there I would be presented with a standard Microsoft Search and Replace window where I could search for "Month" and replace it with "Day" inTable NameMeasure NameIndividual MeasuresNow I would have a _Measures Day table with "Days Total", "ACD Calls Day", "NonACD Calls Day" and "Average Calls Day", etc.Sure there will be some measures that may not paste exactly how I want them but I bet most would and what time saver that would be!

It would nice to have the option to duplicate an existing measure (include formatting) and copy/paste the format of a measure (like Format Painter).

RE: Copy / Duplicate a measures from the field well

there is a similar thread with almost 1000 votes, as is mentioned below. Can this be merged with: Duplicate Measure and Format Copy.

And can this be fixed? I would imagine many users would use this frequently, including me.
