How to copy a Parent-Flow



I want to create copies of my Parent-flow that is calling a Child-Flow. So the "Save as" to create a copy doesn't work.

"Send a copy" also is not possible, because if can not save the flow, when I open it.


Maybe I could create a new solution, move the Parent flow to that solution and then export this new solution, move the parent-flow back to the old solution, delete the new solution and import the exported solution?


Thanks for any tip.

@max81 yes incase of parent-child flows using a solution is only the option as per my knowledge, we tried creating a parent-child flow outside the solution and it just did not work.


So please create a solution and then just the same export import.
