Yes, I _can_ read.

Cut+Paste == Move.
Copy+Paste != Move.

Yes.  The second one is about moving a bunch of transactions en-masse.
That's why they are two differnent bugs.

The first is that Cut+Paste (which == Move) loses the reconcile info.
The second is that there isn't an en-masse way to move transactions.

It would be at the bottom...  A radio button where one option is: "()
Mark bug as duplicate of bug [ ]" But you probably don't have access
to the database to change the bug metadata, so that's probably why
it's not showing it to you.
