I would like to clone an object with all its child parented to it.
for example,

I have an object :
blabla_parent
blabla_child01
blabla_child02

1 -- if i clone all those objects, it will give me :

blabla_parent01
blabla_child01
blabla_child02
blabla_child03
blabla_child04
blabla_parent02

2 -- if i clone the parent alone

blabla_parent01
blabla_child01
blabla_child02
blabla_parent02


Here is what i want to happen :

blabla_parent01
blabla_child01
blabla_child02
blabla_parent02
blabla_child01
blabla_child02

does anybody know if it's possible or/and how to do it ?

is it going to be fix in LW8 ? (talking to myself)

Isn't that what this button does?

Note, for some reason that command wasn't loaded on my install, I just located it and added it manually, guess you may need to also. I have been using a plugin called Super Cloner which has worked well.
