I have a lot of calculated fields that are set up the same but with different constants. It would be nice to be able to duplicate a field (similar to duplicating a page) and then edit duplicated field. It would increase the efficiency vs. copying calculation, creating new column, pasting calculation, changing the formatting and properties.

This would save quite some time. Best would be also if you could select multiple fields and duplicate it

Totally agree with this idea!
Or for example, be able to export existing calculation (in excel for example) > in Excel, copy paste calculation and adapt them > then reimport them in PBI
