Copy document to same library
When using the "Copy" function in a library, it seems the intention is to create a copy of the document in another library.
But when users want to just create a copy of a document in the same location with a different file name, SharePoint throws an error.
Why can the copy function not simply allow a new copy in the same library with a different filename?
Thanks for the feedback! We’re going to call this one done as the specific action of copying a selected item to the same library is supported in the modern UX. If there are other related scenarios you have feedback on please open and drive support with new suggestions. Thanks!

And it would be even better to have a 'hidden' link with the master file...So when the master gets updated, the child gets a notification or something...
This functionality is really needed for ease of use (especially for new users used to file maps)

It would be nice to have a browse button to locate the destination library AND by default use the same library the file currently resides in. Furthermore, if I copy a page with a webpart in, the webpart is gone in the copied page.

This is basic functionality expected by our users. I would really like to see this happen..
It would be nice to be able to copy a page also.
