If you need an exact copy of an overlay project with all the embedding plugins, you can use the cloning function of the Overlay Editor. Cloning an overlay means that you can create a copy of one overlay project you have created and apply it to another constellation including all original overlay's plugins. It allows you to quickly create one overlay for multiple constellations.
Imagine you want to demonstrate your store with its 5 branches, then you can easily clone one overlay project to all 5 stores in your virtual tour list. By doing so the overlay can be accessed from all of your stores` virtual tours and if you need to change the side menu or any info of the stores, you just edit once and all tours` overlay gets updated.
