We have noticed bugs when copying elements that have inline records inside of flexforms.

Essentially when copying an element that uses flexforms to store, the copy uses the FAL record count as the file reference ID.

If there are three FAL records in the field it will end up with just one FAL record with and id of 3. It there is one FAL record in the field it will make the copied record linked to a FAL record of id 1.

Here is a video showing clearly showing the problem.

I am attaching an extension built by Jeff Segars that takes care of this bug. However, I believe it uses and XClass and is not intend as a permanent fix. It is just something we are using to get by until the bug is addressed in the core.

Hi Ron, I tried to reproduce the bug on 6.2.15 using a flux-based extension, without success.

Can you share the ext you used for the test, or test it against 6.2.15 and 7 (latest master)? Thank you.
