Duplicating text

If you duplicate a Default or user-created layer that contains a story, the story will duplicate too. Just make sure the story is completely contained on one layer before you duplicate the layer. (Any document page can be displayed, and it doesn't matter what's selected in your document.) Make the background of the text box opaque if you don't want to see the text on the layer below it.
