The function of nodetemplating is very useful for content editors. This module uses the structure and data of a node as a template, it can also define a part of book nodes as a template as well.

After installation, it brings the following features to your drupal:

1. Every node will have a tab called "set template". With that tab you can duplicate a node or even a whole book with one click (according to the settings)!
2. a menu item called "my node template" will appear in the admin menu. From here you can manage your node templates, namely duplicate or delete them.

This module should be useful for documentations of projects with guidelines.

Use Cases:
1. You've already created a lot of book pages as a template for your product handbook. Now you can mark the start page as a template, and every time you want to create a new product handbook, just duplicate it with the template!
2. You want to create a lot of pages with minor changes. Usually you must create a node, and switch to the old node to copy its content, then go back the new node and paste everything. Now it's just one click away.

Thanks a lot to the inspiration from the module Node clone and Workspace

*UPDATE*:
Since Drupal 6.x has rewritten the book module completely, now it is also required to rewrite the duplication of books in this module. The modification needs much time than estimated.

Current version 6.x-1.0 only supports the duplication of all the content types except book. The version 6.x-1.1 will add the support of book duplication.

So please take a little patience.

*UPDATE*:
Now automatic node creation is optional from version 1.3.
Share template with others is possible from version 1.4.
