Duplicating tracks

Have I completely lost my marbles?

I could have sworn that previously when duplicating a track (R-Click/Duplicate track) the resulting copies were independent of each other and the original.

I just duplicated a track containing some generated text several times (see Bulleted Lists topic if you want to know why!) but when I came to edit the original, the changes were refelcted in all the new copies.

Has something changed or am I going nuts? I can't see anything obvious in preferences that allows you to turn this on or off.

Any thoughts?!

Ian, that's the way it's always worked for me and yes, it drove me crazy the first few times too :-(
In your case, what I'd recommend is clicking the original event and then Ctrl+dragging it to a new track.
Select the first option in the list that comes up.
BTW, it's the same list as when doing a copy/paste on a text event.
HTH.

Generated Text can be copied two ways:
1. Where they are the SAME media - you change one you change them all
2. Where they are different media.

When you hold down the CTRL key and drag the Generated Media, it will ask which you want to do. Apparently duplicating the track does #1.

You know, I could have sworn that duplicating a track with a text event created independent copies. How strange.

It seems that even editing the copies affects the others. Seems odd to me.

Thanks for the workaround gents.
