Copying items in ANGEL

Let's say you are adding new material in ANGEL, and you want to create an item very similar to one you already have. There are several ways to do this. One would be to copy the HTML code of an item and paste it into a new item.
Another way is to duplicate your original.
First, find your original item (to be duplicated) and choose its Utilities link. Now select Copy Item. I overlooked this method for a long time because the subtitle states that you will copy the item to another section (implying that copying it to the same section was not possible). However, take a look at this screen.Make your two choices (Destination Course, Destination Folder) and then finish by clicking Copy.
This creates an exact copy, ready to edit. No (1) after the duplicate. It should appear directly below the original if you copied it to the same course and folder.
