I would love to be able to duplicate an existing data set, or even to copy the symbols from one and then paste into a newly-created d/s.

5.0 doesn't seem to want to let me do that.

Just use the regular Windows shortcuts - Control-Insert to copy the symbols from one and Shift-Insert to paste into a newly-created DataSet.

The right click context menus are there for that in 5.0, are they not?

Keyboard shortcuts for copy and paste were added for 5.1.

Were they Ctrl-C and Ctrl-V respectively? I believed that Ctrl-Insert/Shift-Insert apply to 5.0 too.

Right the standard +C, +V, +X were added.

I hate to say it guys, but neither ctrl-C nor right-button menus "worked."

In fact, every time I ctrl-C'd into a New Data Set window, it pasted the symbols from a previous clipboard of symbols.

I didn't know about ctrl-Insert and shift-Insert. I'll try that.

Because this functionality will appear starting from 5.1.
