I already sent you a note about the duplicate function that changes the modified date.
You replied that it the way you wanted ....
BUT ....
Just want to give you another point of view. I discussed that with my colleague and we both agree that "duplicate" should take a copy of the file changing the name - that's all.
If you go to "finder" on a Mac, that the way it works.
It's very confusing and hard to work with this behavior.
For example, when I want to put a new version of my php in production, I always duplicate the original which changes the modified date. But it's not true, right ?
I suggest to add a preference where we have the choice to keep or not the modified date when using "duplicate".
Thank you,
