How to duplicate an existing work item presentation editor

How to duplicate an existing work item presentation editor without changing the original one. I select for instance and click duplicate... .
After that, I need to unlock every section or tab to modify only a few presentation, or remove it.

Is there a good way to do that ?

The design of the editor presentations mechanism is to reuse as much as possible. Thus when duplicating an editor, you will get a shared copy and not a deep copy. However the advantage of this approach is that you most often only wan to change one section, e.g. the details section.
Thus you can do (for the example of a special details section):
- duplicate the editor
- on the new editor, duplicate the overview tab
- remove the original overview tab (duplicate adds an additional one currently)
- on the new overview tab, duplicate the details section
- remove the original details section from the new overview tab
- in the new details section, you can now do changes that do not affect other editors

I want to duplicate all tasks in an iteration into a new iteration. This will be useful for projects which have similar types of tasks to be executed for each feature like "Wirte HLD', "Write LLD" etc...

The duplicate option provided with the iteration does not work properly
