    Hi Ashwin,


    Thanks for your reply. I tried that way, but it did't work: The form came out differently after I clicked Clone Form. Since the difference is too great, I couldn't use it as a template. Please see attached image.


    Thank you.

    The form you are trying to clone is a card form, you must select the correct or the same form layout of the form you are trying to clone.
