Duping Elements in RSD

Is there any way to control where the duped element shows up in the Inspector?

I have a book review page - lots of books going on one line each. Due to the content, it is much faster to dupe existing rows which have the same content in some columns. For example, I have 12 rows - 1 for book 1, 1 for book 2, etc. When I add row 13, I want to dupe row 9's row in order to keep the same elements, attributes, etc. Book 9 was added by duping row 2. When I dupe row 9, it shows up right after row 2, not right after row 9. I then have to drag it down to place it as row 13. It's not that bad with only 13 rows - but I will have over 100 before I am done.

Any way to control where this dupe of a dupe goes? Or any other suggestions? Thanks!!

Hi Craig,
Select the element that's above the spot where you want it to be inserted on your page. So I do ctrl+c then select the element above the spot within the page and do ctrl +v.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

Instead of using duplicate in design, you can select the row from the dropdown and use copy / paste.
So like Eric is saying select the row you want the new one to go under and paste.
You can use short cuts like Cntrl+C to copy and Cntrl+V to paste
or I also use Edit from the very top menu

Thank you very much. I do cut and paste and edit all the time, but didn't think of that. The duplicate is a good feature - just not the right time to use it. Thanks, again.

Ctrl+c and Ctrl+v does work pretty straightforwardly with rows. For duplicating and precisely placing other elements, I have found Inger's tip extremely helpful:
