Can't duplicate a task Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
When I right click on a task in OF and chose Duplicate, I get a dialog box with only the text "Alert", an icon, and an OK button. It doesn't duplicate the task if I click OK. Anyone else seeing this?

Right-click/duplicate works as expected in Planning mode (release 95506), but in Context mode an error occurs - "The operation could not be completed....".

The keyboard shortcut Command-D in both Planning mode and Context mode does not duplicate and instead performs a Command-V action (Paste).

The menu choice "Duplicate" in Planning mode instead performs a Paste. And the menu choice "Duplicate" in Context mode results in the error "The operation could not be completed..."

Is a blank error dialog box when attempting to duplicate a task in Context mode the desired program behavior? I sometimes have similar tasks, and I'd like to duplicate one and edit, as opposed to creating from scratch. It makes no sense to have a Duplicate command that doesn't allow you to duplicate the selected task.

Of course not. Did someone suggest that it was?
