I have an existing content type on staging. On dev we've added a ton of new fields and display and form setting changes, etc.
It's not practical to go through the config files and find all of the many dozens if not hundreds of interconnected config files related to the content types, its fields and its settings.
So I heard Features is the way to go (even though I thought config sync in D8 was supposed to make Features not needed anymore).
So I've created my Feature. Keeping it simple I just checked the single content type. Saved my feature module and moved it to staging.
When I try to enable to the module I get a screen full of "unable to install" because the configuration already exists errors. Ugg.
So I read that I should remove the configurations. But this removes content and/or associated configurations like vocabularies.
Surely there must be a practical way to merge a content type from dev to staging?
