Copy Replicants for a New File?

Is it possible to copy replicants location for a new file?

Let’s say I have two files: File A, File B.

I imported File A into DEVONthink Pro Office, and then replicated it to Folder 1, 2 and 3.

I then imported File B into DTPO. Since the contents of File B and File A are on the same topic, I would like it to be replicated into the same folders: Folders 1, 2 and 3.

Is it possible for me to copy the replicant settings for File A? So that I will not have to manually have a look at which folders File A is in, and then manually replicate it myself to Folder 1, 2 and 3?

Somewhat similar to the ‘Paste and Match Formatting’ feature in Microsoft Word, in the context of DEVONthink, Replicating, Two Files and Multiple Folders.


One possibility would be to use two scripts (one to copy the parent UUIDs and one to apply them and therefore to replicate the record) but there might be an easier solution. If the contents of file A & B are indeed similar, then the See Also & Classify drawer should suggest the groups 1, 2 & 3.
