How to copy a test case?

How do I copy a test case so that I can create a new case by modifying an existing one?

I tried clicking the Copy button at the test case level, but it doesn't seem to do anything. That is, I click copy, select my current project, and enter a "testarea". It's unclear to me what a testarea is, because that doesn't match other terms used in Tarantula (like set,case,execution). Also, there are no existing testareas in the list. When I click OK, I get a message that the case was copied successfully...but I don't see where the copy is? I checked all the sections in the left-hand-side navigation menu, but the copied case doesn't seem to be there.

    Could you please test without entering anything to Test Area?

    Test Areas are optional feature for dividing project into kind of subprojects. (Can be defined in project settings).

    I could not reproduce this problem :(. Case copying succeeded even with invalid Test Area.

    One thing to check is that case list up-to-date after copying. (Can be refreshed with recycle icon on left side navigator, next to title "Cases".
