    I ought to have a more direct way of doing this (like
    duplicate channel or something). But for now what you do is:

    .. starting with a mono ..

    1) Edit -> Selection -> Select All (or just hit ctrl-a)
    2) Edit -> Copy (or just hit ctrl-c)
    3) Edit -> Add Channels and set the parameters to 0 and 1
    4) Edit -> Paste Replace

    Now you should have two channels containing the same data
    instead of a simple mono file.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

    However if you data is VERY large and recalculating the peak
    data takes a long time upon redrawing the screen you can
    avoid this by:

    .. starting with a mono file again ..

    1) ctrl-a (selecting everything)

    2) ctrl-c (copy what you want to duplicate)

    3) Edit -> Add Channels and set the parameters to 1 and 1

    4) While holding the 'shift' key down Edit -> Paste Replace
    and set it to paste channel 0 of the clipboard to channel 1
    of the destination.

    Holding shift might not be the most obvious thing, but
    that's currently how you get the option to select what
    channels get worked on for most actions. Check the link to
    Docs -> Frontend Features on this website

    Using parameters 1 and 1 on the add channel is that makes it
    put the new channel AFTER the existing one. Then when it
    redraws it doesn't have to recalculate the peak data (maybe
    I should fix it not to require redrawing on those
    conditions, but for now I require it).

    Hope this helps

    Okay, I've added a new 'Edit->Duplicate Channel' action that
    will allow you to easily recreate the contents of one
    channel to another channel. It will appear in the next release.
