Duplicating existing content type information etc.

I have not been able to find ways to either: (1) duplicating an existing content type when creating a new one which I can then modify; (2) exporting and importing all settings for the various types of informations created, e.g. content types, products, product variations, taxonomies etc. rather than laboriously recreating them when needed.

Have I missed something?

First, for exporting / importing there's a great project called "Features" that lets you export all of your site's settings and content types in the form of an installable module.


Next, to allow you to duplicate "types" of products / content types ... you would need something pretty cool.

You can clone specific products using this tool: http://drupal.org/project/commerce_product_clone

Or you might be able to create a "feature" of the content/product type and then use http://drupal.org/project/drush_clone to create a copy of that content/product type using the command line.
