Element copy and paste not working

In playing around with Element I went to copy and paste a group from the effect controls window. I used the plugin's copy and paste function to copy group 1 and paste to group 2. This pasted everything except the 3D particle. So my animation just made my particles disappear instead of change shape. So I accidentally found out how to make particles disappear which is good to know :)

To fix it I went into scene setup and duplicated the particle. But I figured I would report this in case it is a bug. I'm assuming that the copy and paste function should copy and paste everything including the particle right?

Thanks

No. This is no bug or issue. Particles are exclusively assigned inside the editor. The groups merely provide the transformation and animation features, not the geometry.

Gotcha, so I have to set up all of the particle information in the scene setup then I can copy and paste the rest of the info in the effects panel.

Thanks!
