How to avoid target values getting reset when copy/pasting widgets?

Friends,

It is sensible to reuse widget interactions built in one page over in another page. However, when I try to copy/paste a widget with interactions built all of the target values get reset and I’ve to start all over again.

This seems to happen even when the relevant targets are available on the page.
Is there a way to handle this better?

Thanks!
