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:

Lock screen
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.
