The WF Development seems to get on track again…

Gonna move this to General since it fits better there I think.

For the feature request itself please see here: Transclusion/clone (display item in multiple places)

I’ve updated the post title so that it’s more clear. Looks like the name “transclusion” is what people agree to all call it :slight_smile:

Actually, this has deep roots in hypertext theory. Ted Nelson coined the term in 1980, and he pointed to his 1965 “Complex information processing…” article in ACM as the first place he explored the underlying concept that he later called “transclusion”.

Understandable… Technically it’s not easy unless WorkFlowy has planned for it from Day 1.
