When you right-click a sheet tab in Calc you get a menu:
I would like this menu to be replaced by:
Currently when copying a sheet, you must remember to click the copy button on the next menu to copy rather than move the sheet. I have just overwritten data I needed by forgetting to click this button.
An alternative would be to make copy the default on the next menu rather than move.
basically you propose split the "Move/Copy Sheet" menu item in 2 separate items.
I changed summary notes according to this... feel free to edit it yourself if it's not what you asked.
I set status to NEW and I change version field to "inherited from OOo" since that menu item has always been like that.
I add UI and Calc experts to CC list to hear if this enhancement request is feasible or not.
Well, modifying the UI per user requests is not a good trend I think. At least I'm not volunteering to do that.

I agree with you. I added to CC list just to know a developer advise.
a UI change needs more users asking forit, not just one.
basically you should convince other users that you proposed change is worth it.
*** Bug 89421 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Alternative solution to splitting the menu items might be to make the mode for the follow-on dialog (movecopysheet.ui) stateful. Select as last used, rather than default as now to Move.
At the least provide UI selection of default action--Expert Configuration or Tools -> Options -> LO Calc -> Defaults panel.
I am marking this as resolved because of the lack of support for my proposal.
