I am in creative in my friends server, but i do not have commands

How do i simply duplicate an item (with NBT tags) that is in my inventory easily?

I would prefer a method without the use of glitches.


Unfortunately, it is not possible to do this. However, you can put the items that you want to duplicate in a chest, and /clone it.

For example, you want to duplicate a Sharpness V diamond sword that is named "Bob." You put the sword in a chest (let's say that the chest's coordinates are at 0 64 0). To duplicate the chest and put it at 2 64 0, you run this command, either through chat or a command block:

/clone 0 64 0 0 64 0 2 64 0

You can even put multiple items in the chest and they will ALL be duplicated at once! I hope this helps.

Don't quote me on this, but I am pretty sure if you click your pick block button and hold Control, it will save all of its NBT tags with it.

    Incorrect. It is true that this works for picking blocks, but with items in the inventory, it's not possible. – ExpertCoder14 Aug 5 at 21:38
