Sometimes you are in the glossary because you want to copy one of the terms, modify it slightly and give it a slightly different name to reflect that difference. You can highlight, copy and paste the text you want to duplicate, and then perform the ‘highlight & add’ steps to accomplish this. An easier way makes Pathagoras do the work.
1.Right click inside of the term.
2.Select ‘Pathagoras Tools’ from the right-click menu
3.Select ‘Duplicate Glossary Term.’
As the name of the command suggests, Pathagoras will duplicate the term. It will also let you give the term a new name (proposing the original name with a letter designator) and a new subject.
4.Once duplicated, you should modify the clause to reflect its differences from the original clause.
