Very often I have to combine several .psd files. Most of the time I have to duplicate 10 or more Channels frome one file to another.

And here is the Problem. I can duplicate only one Channel at once.
It should be possible to select more Channels and then duplicate them inot another file.
Just like with Layers, where it works fine to duplicate as many Layers as I wnat at once.
Please insert this function. It would save a lot of time.

It's easy enough to select the layers/channels, but you're not allowed to duplicate them, which is what Christoph is wanting.

Yeah, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to, but this is one of those things that hasn't been updated since it was introduced. Marketing probably doesn't understand why anyone would want to, so i doubt it'll ever change...

I select multiple layers at one time and then right click on them and click duplicate layers.

He's asking about channels, not layers.

This is the first request I've heard for this. (I did a search and didn't find any other requests)

I suspect this could be done via a script, so that might be your best bet.
