The ETS App Extended Copy offers options to re-use existing main groups and middle groups when generating group addresses. For both the main group and the middle group, there is a checkbox for preserving/re-using of same.
Unfortunately, up to now, the ETS App Extended Copy does not support a way to re-use existing sub groups. When using the ETS App Extended Copy for a destination range of already existing sub groups, you would have to delete them prior usage of the ETS App Extended Copy.
If you do not do this, a specified start value of the destination sub group will be ignored and, instead, the next free group address will be chosen that follows the sub group start value.
Of course, depending on the circumstances this option might be understood as a feature: It ensures that already existing sub groups are not overwritten.
However, in many use cases there is an intentional overwriting of sub groups so that the work around of manually deleting the sub groups prior using the ETS App Extended Copy is cumbersome.
Furthermore, there should be provided an option to choose between (i) reusing the existing sub groups and maintaining their original names and (ii) reusing the existing sub groups but manipulating the names as can be done for the main and middle group.
Put succinctly, this request concerns the re-use of sub groups in the same way as the re-use of main and middle groups is available.
