Copy/paste class in project explorer broken in ij12?

Hi,
  Basically as the subject says:  when I do ctl-c on a file in project explorer, and then ctl-v on its own parent directory, there is no opportunity to change the filename: and it uselessly complains that "file already exists". Well.. yea.. i know, i'm trying to make a copy (/clone) of it..

This used to work in earlier versions.

Anyway Shift+F5 will clone the class faster than Ctrl+C / navigate to parent folder / Ctrl+V

Hi Alexander, ok i can use that shift-f5.  I prefer not to memorize it and use the menus.  Where in the menu (if at all) is this "clone" operation listed?

Memorize only Ctrl+Shift+A that is 'Find Action'. It will help you to find any action and any setting of IntelliJ IDEA.
