When copying/pasting a user created Widget into another widget any changes made to the copy will change the main Widget without making any changes to the copy.

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Create two Widget Blueprints (BugTest, BugUmg)
  2. The first one (BugTest) simply leave it as is for now with an empty canvas
  3. The second one (BugUmg) add a Static Text Widget
  4. Go back to the empty canvas of the first Widget (BugTest) and drag in the second Widget (BugUmg)
  5. From the Hierarchy menu copy and paste the second Widget (BugUmg) into the first Widget (BugTest)
  6. At this point there should be two instances of our second Widget (BugUmg) in the canvas of our first widget (BugTest)
  7. Attempt to edit the copy/pasted version of the second Widget

Results: The edits made to the copy will only apply to the main Widget while the copied version does not take any of the changes.

Expected: That the copy/pasted widget would take the changes.
