Have an FT-8800R and wanted to duplicate the left side memories on the right side. Can do a CTRL-A and select all and then attempt a copy (either by pull down menu or by right clicking and selecting copy).

But when I attempt to paste - (either by pull down menu or by right clicking and selecting paste), no paste. No joy.

I think this is a regression from #739.

It seems to only affect copying from one side of a radio to the other. It does not affect copying to and from other models of radio, or copying within one side of a radio.

A temporary workaround would be to paste everything into a CSV (Ctrl-N) or other radio, then copy the CSV, then paste back into the other side of the radio.

Just wondering if any progress has been made on this? Thanks!

Another work around I found:
I was building a file for my friend with a FT-8800 and could not copy from one side to the other. I had done so previously as I also have a FT-8800. I saved his file with only one side containing any repeater info. I then opened up his file so that both tabs contained the same file. I could then copy from the right side of one file to the left side on the other file. Re-save and you have a complete left and right file.
