Nice! This works flawlessly. I have just recently noticed that I can’t duplicate a listing from a smart group but I have to reveal original first and the duplicate. Is this a recent behavior or has it always been that way? I can’t believe I never ran up again that before recently and I have been doing it frequently of late. This button will improve it with less steps

Perfect! Thanks!! Works Great.


Great. But… Toolbar icon is not hilighted when listings selected in the middle column, even though the control-click popup menu shows the Reveal command hilighted. See screenshot.
