    make your clones as an Array that way you can loop through the array to change all the clones.

    myclones new Array()

    for (idx=0;idx<10;idx++){
    myclones[idx]=element("layertoclone").clone();

    }

    you now have 10 clones of the layer and can refer to them as
    myclones[0]
    myclones[1]
    myclones[2]
    ...etc....

    So you can now set/assign/change the properties of all the clones in a simple loop. For example to hide them all

    for (idx=0;idx=myclones.length;idx++){
    myclones[idx].hide()
    }

    see the help regarding for loops and arrays and you should get the idea. See the Clone example as I believe it uses an array just as above so that it can check if any of the clones are out of bounds by looping through them.
