The checkbox to "Copy this  value when using copy this [record]" is not present for Address fields. Anyone else experiencing this?

Yeah, I don't see that option available when I look at my address fields, but it is there for other fields. Interesting, I'd never noticed that fact before. I wonder why they don't want that feature available to us for address fields. I could certainly make a business case for needing it.

Wow, I just ran into this. My app's been copying addresses for a couple years. I can only guess that my recent visit to the address field to change something else, and it updated so that it can't auto-fill any more. This is really going to annoy my users, and run into problems, as record assignment is based on the address. Blah.

Yup. It is extremely annoying because users are being required to re-enter the entire address every time they copy a record. It's annoying, time-consuming, and inefficient.

Looks like I'll be making an API_addrecord button. That should fix it.

Here's my URL field button formula, FWIW:

URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_QUOTE_REQUESTS] & "?a=API_GenAddRecordForm"&
"&_fid_7="&URLEncode([Name])&
"&_fid_8="&URLEncode([Company])&
"&_fid_14="&URLEncode([Email])&
"&_fid_85="&URLEncode([Address: Street 1])&
"&_fid_86="&URLEncode([Address: Street 2])&
"&_fid_87="&URLEncode([Address: City])&
"&_fid_88="&URLEncode([Address: State/Region])&
"&_fid_89="&URLEncode([Address: Postal Code])&
"&_fid_90="&URLEncode([Address: Country])&
"&_fid_45="&URLEncode([Terr override])&
"&_fid_6="&URLEncode("Rep- Send Quote")&
"&_fid_20="&URLEncode([Product family])
