Help plz. Craft duplicate do not make random contents. Duplicate not working.

Craft duplicate do not make random contents. Duplicate not working.

I duplicated the layer (using the craft duplicate tool) filled by Craft Data (using the Data tool), but craft duplicate is not working. I didn't get a random type content.

Does not create random type content on Duplicate.

Why does not it work?

    I'm having this same problem but was assuming I did something wrong. Here are the steps I'm taking: 

    1. Create new text box

    2. Open Data Tab

    3. Select Dates

    Result: Text box changes to random dates

    3. Open Duplicate Tab

    4. Check Vertical, enter 10

    5. Click Duplicate Content Button

    Expected result = Vertical list of random dates

    Actual results =  Vertical list of the same date from step 3.

    I am also having the same issue with Craft v1.0.75 (128) where duplicate is not creating random content. I start by creating a card with a random picture, country, and city all by Craft.

    Then I use Craft's Duplicate tool to duplicate the entire card. 

    The image, country, and city are the same. Please advise, thank you.

    Hi Christina and Brian,

    Thank you very much for each providing detailed information about this issue. It appears as if this may be related to known issue that our Engineering team is currently working on.

    In order to determine if what you're experiencing is, in fact, the same issue, I will be opening tickets on each of your behalf with our Support team. Our Support team will be reaching out soon requesting any other needed information. Please look for a message from them soon.

    In the meantime, the best workaround I can suggest would be to Duplicate the layer first, and then apply the data from Craft Data plugin - here's a recorded a screencast for your reference. 

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention and remaining patient.

    Thank you for your reply.

    Attached screenshot.

    It seems to be a problem like Christina and Brian.

    I hope it will be resolved soon.

    I want to duplicate the Symbol filled by Craft Data (using the Data tool).
    But the best workaround you suggested to Christina and Brian is inconvenient because not applicable for Symbols.
