    Idea: Just give me a simple "Copy to new" button please

      I am copying my discussion from the "Feature Discussion" area to the Idea area (thanks to Kevin Crossman for educating me).

       

      How ironic that I ended up using "Option C" below to ensure everything copied correctly.

       

       

       

      I know there's been a discussion about copying from templates and to multiple sub-spaces at the same time (https://community.jivesoftware.com/message/48625 ), but please don't overthink this.

       

      Just make a copy button available.  I would use this button almost daily!  I can deal with telling people "hey, use 'Document X' as your template".  I don't need any fancy integration of a templating feature.

       

      As it stands now you have 3 variations of a work-around:

      a)

      view source document

      highlight content

      copy

      new document

      paste

       

       

      b)

      edit source document

      highlight content

      copy

      new document

      paste

       

      c)

      edit source document

      view HTML

      highlight content

      copy

      new document

      paste

       

       

      The only one that works reliably (without anomolies) for me is (c).  It's a pain in the butt.

       

      A "copy to new document" button when I'm viewing a document would be so easy to do and get me 90% of where I need to go.

       

      I'm begging you to crawl before you run on this feature and ease our pain!
