Separator in Web Content Structures causes incrementation issues and loss of data on edit save

      Description: Web Content Structure Builder fails to increment repeated field names inside a Separator Field on an edit. This causes loss of all edits on save. 


      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Content & Data > Web Content > Structures tab > Add new (blue plus)
      2. Name your structure "Test title"
      3. Drag and drop two separator fields
      4. For each separator, drag and drop a text field inside
      5. For each text field, change the FILED LABEL to the same value - "Test" - by double clicking on the field. ---> Notice that the NAME field is incremented - "Test" and "Test1"
      6. Save the structure
      7. Now open the structure again and add another Separator field
      8. Add a Text field inside the separator
      9. Name the Text field the same thing: "Test" --> Notice the field NAME is NOT incremented
      10. Save the structure


       Expected Results: New text field NAME is incremented and saved OR an error is thrown with edits still present, allowing the user to fix them manually.

       Actual Results:  'Error: The definition field name Test was defined more than once.' is thrown and all modifications are lost. 



      • This behavior is repeatable with other field types, can mix and match.  
      • I cannot replicate this behavior without the separator field.
