Is there a simple way to get a clone of a BaseDocument?
I'm writing a plugin that the parses the active document and exports it to an external format. In some cases, this requires me to modify the document, and therefore I would like to work with a clone of the active document instead.

Since BaseDocument is ultimately derived from C4DAtom you should be able to do:
BaseDocument *cloned_doc = current_doc->GetClone(COPYFLAGS_0, NULL);
You'd need to try this to see if it works though.

Thanks, I'll try that.

Tried it and it seems to work fine. Thanks for the help! A follow up question:
According to the docs, I own the BaseDocument returned by GetClone(). Right now, I'm freeing the document with BaseDocument::Free(cloned_document), is that the right way to do it?

That would be how I would do it, yes.
