Virtual Copies not added to Collection when created in Collection

Since updating to LRC CC 8.0, I've noticed that if you create a Virtual Copy within a collection or album, the Virtual Copy is not added to that collection/album.

You must go to the "All Photographs" album in order to see the Virtual Copy. This really breaks up a workflow and occurs in both Library and Develop views.

The app also does not present any UI that the Virtual Copy has even been created.

That’s been like that for a while, you just noticed it in LR 8. Really annoying,right?

No, that has not been like that for a while, at least not on my Mac version of Lightroom Classic 8. If I create a virtual copy while I am in a collection, that virtual copy shows up in that collection. Just like it should. Check that you have not filtered on original files.

I've just noticed this as well. When you select attributes while in a collection, you can click the button and it shows on screen that masters & virtual copies will be displayed, but no virtual copy appears. Return to All photographs and the virtual copies appear. What is even stranger is that when in a collection you select the virtual copy only button, the photo I have made a virtual copy of does not appear. LR Classic v. 8.0

Which button? The buttons I show in the screenshot are for either originals or virtual copies. There is no button that shows both (but you can click both buttons).

I have windows 10. When I try to create a virtual copy from an image in a collection, it does it. No problem.

It's working properly on my Windows 7 system with LR 8.0 as well.
