Is there a way to duplicate published collections from a publish service to another (similar) one ?

I think the silence means none of us can think of a way. I don't use Publish Services very often, but I'll bump the thread just in case anyone else has an epiphany.

Thanks Victoria.
It's easy to duplicate a standard collection, but a publish collection , albums and album sets, may have quite a few parameters and I was looking for a way to duplicate approx 60 albums from one environment to another.

Actually.... I have a soon-to-be-released plugin which does this. It copies entire collection sets or published collection sets, with or without the images - you use the Copy command, then go to where you want to duplicate the set and run the Paste command. It's been tested on large sets, and has been used to copy a published service's sets from one catalogue to another catalogue.

I haven't announced it yet as I am testing the whole download/payment process, but the plugin is available and the page is live at jb Collection Tools .
