Summary0007149: Duplicating tracks and selecting any option (copy, new empty or share) = only the currently active playlist being reproduced.
DescriptionArdour 5.4.463
"In a Land of Clear Colours"
(rev 5.4-470-ge9eea8d)
Intel 64-bit
Steps To ReproduceDuplicating tracks and selecting any of the three options (copy, new empty or share) results in only the currently active playlist being reproduced on the new, duplicated track.

There was a discussion on IRC and this behaviour of only copying the "active" playlist is intentional.

The issue is with the ambivalent wording in the dialog.

There was some consensus that changing the dialog to say:

For each Track:

[X] Copy Playlist
[ ] New Playlist
[ ] Share Playlist with original Track

That it would be clear what was intended.

This should now be resolved with changes to the Duplicate Track dialog in commit 05c2e4ef or nightly build >= 5.5.409
