I have same problem, editors can't duplicate because of editor permissions. Admins can.

Workaround would be appreciated since this is long standing issue and should be fixed sooner than later!

Thank You!

First of all, sorry for the delay, but please try to open a new ticket instead of answering one that is already started, sometimes new replies from people other than the ticket's author are lost (that's why i didn't answer sooner).

I just asked our developers if they could provide us a workaround for this although i believe that for now, the only one is to change the role of your users, maybe to "author", could you try that while i wait for our devs to get back at me?
