Copying a group does not copy all properties of group items

I have the same problem. If I use:
Copy group "x" of card y to card z
It performs just as you are describing. However, if I do this:
Go cd y
Select group "x"
Go cd 1
Then it works fine. This behavior is not good for me because I don't want
to destroy the clipboard. But, perhaps it will work for you.
