Copy comments on files along with the files or folders.

Copy comments on files along with the files or folders.

I use Dropbox for my work portfolio, with separate folders to show different clients. I often need to copy entire folders and/or files to create a new folder for another client - but when I do this, the comments on each file do NOT transfer over when copied. This means I have to copy & paste each comment all over again, one by one, every single time I have to copy them for a new client. This is a huge, tedious waste of time & I'm considering using another platform instead of Dropbox for my work portfolio because of this. 

Please let me know if this is something Dropbox plans to add soon, thanks.

This would be an excellent update to one of my fav apps, esp for video comments

I've seen several requests for this feature, but still no solution or update from Dropbox. I have a master folder consolidating all of my documents with their respective "comments", however, I often need to copy documents to individual folders for external sharing. As of now, there is no option to duplicate the "comments" section along with each document and I have to copy and paste for each copy I make which is very tedious. It would be great to have a setting that allows documents to be duplicated exactly as is ("comments" included) to avoid this extra step. Thank you to anyone who reviews this idea!
