Shape.Duplicate Method (Visio)
Duplicates an object.
The Duplicate method duplicates the specified object or selection and adds a copy to the same page as the original. Using the Duplicate method is equivalent to clicking Duplicate on the Paste menu on the Home tab.
When used with a Shape object, the Duplicate method duplicates the shape.
