Copy media items AND sources from project to project
Add a function to automatically copy media item and source media from a project to another.

Hi !

I often copy/paste media items from projects to projects, but I recently found out that the source file aren't copied when using project tabs.

The source file is still referring to the source project even with "copy imported media to project media directory" ticked in the prefs.
When ticking this option I expect my reaper project to contain all the sources files I used, so I'm able to backup or share it without having to unzip other session in order to relink all the sources.

Right now the only turnaround is to manually "copy source file into project directory" in project bay or use "Save As" all the time.

It would be a life-saver on a long term to have Reaper automatically copying the source file when copy pasting media items from projects to projects.

You can see an example here:

Thanks !
