NavBar Pageset - How to Copy a Topic Keeping the Same Messages

This can be useful when the individual has difficulty applying one topic to many situations such as the same restaurant picture to any restaurant, the same doctor picture for all physicians or the same playground picture for all playgrounds.
 
You will be able to change the topic picture and move/resize/hide/add/delete hotspots or tabs in the copy without affecting those in the original topic.  However, any additions/deletions/edits to messages will affect both the original topic and the copy. 
 
If you’d like to edit messages in the copy without it affecting the original topic, go to the
How to Make a Copy of the Data section of the article, How to Create a New Topic That is Similar and Customizable.
