Were you aware you can right-click on a collection/smart collection and choose Duplicate Collection/Duplicate Smart Collection to make a copy of it?

Yes, that is what I do now.  But it's a kludge at best.

Gotcha.  Just making sure you at least knew that the copy function was available.  The current copy function is actually all I need, but I could see wanting more flexibility and granular control if  you had a ton of rules or complicated smart collection setups.
