able to save a record, change only a couple of fields and then save it as a new record

Pretty much everything is working as expected but what I need is to be able to save a record, change only a couple of fields and then save it as a new record.
I've tried every combination of rules I could find (I think). And all that happens is that it overwrites the current record. Without going into every combination some of the obvious things I've tried:
Submit but leave form open but entering new data just overwrites.
Rules - most every combination of submitting and then querying, switching to edit item view, send data to webpart (I don't think this actually does anything)...
Tried the above in most any order.
What does work is saving and opening a new form but that resets the data. I've done tons of searches and researching but can't seem to come up with a good answer

    Hi @Surabhi Singh ,

    I'm afraid it is impossible not to overwrite the current record after editing and saving the record.
