"Duplicate Panel" loses IDs of panel contents

Solved

When using the command "Duplicate Panel" to duplicate a "Layer" (which should be called a "Panel", or the command should be "Duplicate Layer") within a dynamic panel, all of the IDs of components and widgets within the duplicate are lost.


Thus, a duplicate of this:


Becomes this:


I would be much happier if the descendant elements of "History_Panel-old_2" retained their original IDs, albeit with underscore indexes to disambiguate them.

Bump. I was just about to file a new suggestion, “Preserve component IDs when using "Duplicate Panel",” but remembered that this exists. And has never been commented upon. Maybe I'll file that feature request, anyway.

Hi Dave,


I've commented on the other post as well. The issue has been forwarded to the development team.


Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.


Best,


Marc
