sorry, again forget to "reply to all". Why can't the list be organized
as all the others?

Not a real copying. What happens with "new" depends on the kind of
style. For the most kinds you get a style with a link to that style,
from which you call "new". With this link the value of the properties
are inherited. So you can build a hierarchy of styles.
An important exception is the page style. You cannot build hierarchies
of page styles. But for page styles the properties are not copied to the
new page style, so that you have to start from scratch. So there is a
deficiency in page styles: you have neither linking nor copying.
I guess, that adding "Copy" to the page styles will be easier than
adding a linking feature. But I have not examined the code.
