Duplicate page layout(s) and subset

Anonymous

For some time now I have attempted several times to duplicate a page layout or a complete subset. but there is no option do do so, it seems such a fundamental thing to be able to do.

I will give you an example: I have a layout book subset for my completed working drawing documentation approx 30 A1 pages (or layouts)
in these 30 layouts I have some 200ish drawing layouts placed across all of these pages with the drawings placed and positioned carefully and half of them along with their own drawing titles placed carefully.

Now I want to create a complete duplicate layout set for example as a bimx hyper model set that i can also add additional documentation to and publish it off as a bimx hyper model.
without having to move or remove my original set so that I am able to keep them separate to publish to printer or pdf

If I simply want to produce a duplicate set I have to go through the labourious process of creating each layout and giving them all the same page names and properties, then going through each view and copy/pasting all the layouts page by page.

Wouldnt it just be easy if i could right click and duplicate the set?

I might be missing something but on Mac you just Opt+Drag the folder (or selection of layouts) in the layout and it copies it in Windows it should be ALT+Drag or some combination.
