The option to Add from existing site or list column is not available in Settings --> List Content

Occasional Visitor

I have recently created a new document library SharePoint online, I need it to have a copy of an existing libraries settings but will no files as I will use it for testing purposes. 

Having created the library and imported a couple of Content Types from the site I have noticed that I can't not add existing columns to the content types on the new library. The option to "Add from existing site or list column" is not available in Settings --> List Content Type. Nor is the "Name and Description" and "Workflow Settings" links under the settings for the content type. All of these options are available on the original document library.

If I create a new column on this library, and mark it to be applied to all content types,the new column is only created for the Document content type and not the other content types associated to this library.

Has anybody come across this before or have any ideas? TIA
