Is there a way in L5 to duplicate a Visual Filter?  If so, how does one accomplish this?  I'd like to duplicate one I have created, remove a few items, and add a few new ones.  I'm looking to save some time by not redoing some of the work I've already done.  I have a feeling this is easy to do but I cannot seem to figure out how to do this.  I was hoping it would be similar to duplicating a custom highlight.  Thank you and Lord bless!

I don't think there is an easy way to do it. This would be a good thing to suggest -- the ability to copy an existing Visual Filter or save one as a new name in order to be able to make some minor changes (post suggestions on the Suggestions forum).

Thank you for the quick reply Rosie.  I have already added this as a suggestion.  Lord bless!

Actually, you can now do this. Under the "Documents" menu, select "Share Documents". Find the filter or document you want to duplicate. There is an "Actions" menu where you can select "Duplicate".
