AppleScript "duplicate" command & duplicating by drag'n'drop

Duplicating a group into another database by drag’n’drop keeps replicants intact. But using duplicate in AppleScript turns replicants into duplicates.

Could this please be changed, so that duplicating via AppleScript keeps replicants?

Please post the source of the script so that we can reproduce this, thanks!

This script turns replicants into duplicates - while duplicating via drag’n’dropping keeps them intact.

tell application id "DNtp"
		set theRecords to selected records
		if theRecords = {} then error "Please select some records"
		set theGroup to display group selector "Duplicate to:"
		repeat with thisRecord in theRecords
			duplicate record thisRecord to theGroup
		end repeat
	on error error_message number error_number
		if the error_number is not -128 then display alert "DEVONthink" message error_message as warning
	end try
end tell

And what’s selected before using this script? Multiple identical replicants?

A group that contains subgroups and replicated records

I’ll check this tomorrow.
