Unfortunately it appears that Max isn’t supporting it anymore. But since it was released under the MIT license I’m making it available on Github @

Please help improve it by submitting your pull requests.

Is this still available?

Apologies if I’m wrong but I just can’t find a download link to it, and the developer’s site doesn’t even mention it, seems to be far too common on Devotee.

The ability to export a fieldset from one project, and easily import/replicate it into another, completely alters how we are working with EE now. Now that data constructs can be abstracted and re-used with ease, content-rendering templates truly can as well. Saving me hours each day right now.

Just awesomeness. And free too.

In general solid but I noticed an issue when replicating a Matrix field that it multiplies the cols by 2 on the original you’ve cloned.

A little rough around the edges, but an absolute life saver if you’re cloning fields a lot. I think this has saved me whole days worth of work. I think a little more UX tweaking would make this a premium add-on.

I just used this to clone fields across multiple channels and it worked like a charm!!!  This saves sooo much time, and also helps with consistency in your custom fields.  Love it!

On a project I was working on I created almost 150 fields in 2 groups but realized they need to be in a single group. Simply exported the fields from one group and imported them into the right group. Saved me hours of having to redo my fields.

A must addon for developers. I use it in all my projects. Following the DRY principle, this saves me a lot of time from creating new custom fields one by one. So much easier to create a bunch of similar fields in bulk like this!

A few typos and possible small improvements, but overall a great addon.
