Description Mat M 2018-03-07 00:18:30 UTC
All objects should have a unique name in Draw
When you copy/paste one or more objects, the names of the copies are the same as the original, giving duplicates

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create two shapes in a Draw document
2. Select on of them
3. Menu Modify>Name, and give an easy name, like Nice Square
4. Select the two shapes
5. Copy and paste them

Actual Results:  
You have two shapes named "Nice Square" and two shapes named "Shape 2"
In the Navigator, whatever the occurence you click on, the selected object is always the first generated one.

Expected Results:
4 shapes named:
Nice Square
Shape 2
Nice Square_1
Shape 2_1

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

OpenGL enabled: Yes

Additional Info:
Same thing occurs when you duplicate a slide. All the contained objects have the same name and should be suffixed. Tell me if this needs a new issue.

Repro. Format - Name.

I don't think the duplication needs another report (I assume it goes through the same code path).
