Hello. Am I completely blind today?

There is a duplicate button for simple products but not for configurable ones.

Am I missing something?

thanx,
mary red face

Nope.  Can’t do it.  Not sure why, wish we could.

Thanks, Sherrie.
Really thought it was one of those times when something is right there
but you just can’t see it.

Configurable product can’t have duplication because it depends on Simple product.  In a most simple case, you need two simple products to make up one Configurable product - my logic tells me I want what it’s offers now than having a Configurable product clone one configurable and two simple products (at the least). Imagine if you needed 10 simple products to make up one Configurable, and the systems allows you to duplicate, that will be a disaster.
