When we duplicate a file, the name is added by "copy". Please can you make it an option when can remove, It's so annoying to remove mannually for all the files...

Thank you ;)

Especially don't do this, we can not have 2 files with the same name, even if in 2 different files, the - what is right? Or then make sure the files are always called Filename_v00001, Filename-v00002, etc... It would be probably more explicit, make it an optional feature eventually. .

Yes, I was just going to say, please leave Copy, at the least as the default. I often need to know that it's the copy, and I can, as seen in the screenshot above, rename it to whatever I want if I've got a reason NOT to treat it like a copy.

It is possible, if you save it to another format, to have the identical names, so I wouldn't be opposed to an option, but it's certainly an option that can create more problems than it solves if you're not very alert.
