I agree, a built-in duplicate function would be awesome. These small details matter. On the other hand, there are many plugins available that can do the job. I usually install such a plugin when developing a new site (since I need it anyway) and delete it after finishing the site.
Thanks Mike, i agree – the Duplicate Post ( and its alternative ) are a good plugin for this kind of thing.
And it kind of feels right that this be handled by a separate plugin that can be used for all post types.
However if it is something that can be added easily to Elements then we will endeavour to do so 🙂
