    Ability to Right Click and Copy a Strategy

    It would be awesome if we had the ability to just right click in the NinjaTrader Editor Explorer and create a copy of a Strategy or Indicator with two clicks. In testing, a lot of modifications of code are made sometimes commenting out is not good enough. Right now, we have two options

    1. Go through windows explorer, make a new copy in the directory and NT Editor will see the difference and recompile or
    2. Create a new strategy/indicator etc.. through the wizard, copy the old code and paste it into the file, go through the code and rename the Class and the name so that it NT doesn't get confused.

    It would be so much easier if we could just right click and make a copy, especially if you have a strategy template that you use.

    You already can. Use that same right-click popup menu to save the file to a new name, and it will make the necessary classname substitutions as part of the file-saving procedure.
