Been busy with other projects today but I've started down the path of adding copy and paste support for shipping rates. May be handy for those making edits to European countries. No ETA, but I'll give it a few moments when I'm taking a break from other gigs.

[edit: It's been added]

I'm sorry Paul. You're obviously forgetting about Mad Max here. I'll let you slide though.

I love this tool … I mean toolbox. I feel like Knight Rider when I hit that toolbar button to fire it up. 

Jason, I am intrigued by the copy/paste of shipping rules feature. What does it copy and how does it work? Can't tell you how tiresome it is to have to turn Guam off (and about 10 others) ever time I add a tiered custom ship rate table.

How's this: you can take a snapshot of the "enabled/disabled" fields, then apply to another rule?

What does it copy and how does it work?

It's not the prettiest method. Clicking copy grabs the shipping rates for that country and throws that data it into a javascript object. Pasting is a little scarier as it removes ALL of the rates from the selected country, than adds whatever rates are stored in that saved object. (I really should build in some form of undo)

Shopify does some interesting caching for shipping rates and taxes so if you navigated away from that page and back again the old values would show (even though they've changed). I'd love to have a way to avoid that but for now you need to manually refresh the page to see the changes.

Some basic tag editing added.

And since a few people have asked I've added this:

Only because I had to do some cleanup on a clients store recently I was thinking of adding this to the public version.

Seems like a bad idea to have bulk deletion. Will have to ponder whether this gets added or not.

Ever have to make a copy of giant link lists? Oddly enough I seem to need this a lot when adjusting menus on unpublished themes. Today was the last day I wanted to waste time doing that so I adding in a copy button.

Added a couple more timesavers for those occasional tasks of needing to create a linklist of all collections, and a linklist of all pages.

This is so awesome! I too often enough find myself in need of copying a link list, or creating one of almost or all collections in a shop. That is so very sweet! Thanks a million, Jason!
