Duplicate a book from Smart Collection?

While this works well if you start in your library it does not work if you start by selecting a book from a smart collection.

Is there any reason for that?

Nothing from anyone about this bug or any reason why it's considered a feature and not a bug?

I just tried it in DVDPedia and copy/paste worked. I copied a Title from a Smart Collection and pasted it into both an included and an excluded collection, and a (copy) pasted in both times.

I was going to suggest maybe you just aren't scrolled to the right place to see it, but I double checked and both times my view jumped to the Title pasted in both times.

Maybe it's something about the peculiars of your smart collection? The one I tried was based only on "Tags" "contains".

Or wait ... are you trying to paste the copy into another Smart Collection? That won't work
