I have missed the last few chats, but if it comes up again, I am
wholeheartedly for this ability too, so feel free to drop my name as one
wanting it. I know that only makes three of us, but surely there are more.
I use witnesses, but there are still times, when I need several copies of
the same tag and it would be so nice to be able to say make 5 copies. It
would speed up the process if we could get rid of the "Are you sure"

Jill, I really, really agree with you and have asked Bob V. abt this in
several online chats. He felt there wasn't a real need to make multiple
copies of a tag since in most situations people just make one tag and add
everyone else as a witness. I don't happen to do it that way as I prefer
the flexibility of ordering tags individually for each person. So, I often
copy tags as you do. Should the subject come up again you might put in a
word to Bob. I'm sure he got tired of having me make an issue of it. :)
