Just tried this out, Issues were copied over successfully. However, documents were not. Shouldn't the copied project also have the original project's documents as well?

Please open a new Feature request for coping Documents. You can reference this issue (#886) and another issue if you'd like (#3367).

Side Note: This issue should have been Closed instead of Resolved.

Looks like it was created as #5664. I'd like to see this feature as well for the same reasons noted in the other job.
