I see that others are working differently than I am.
I wish Lightroom supported a workflow that allowed me to simply populate Collections with virtual copies. I do not want virtual copies in my original folder. I do not want non-virtual copies in a Collection. I want to set a Collection as the target folder and every time I hit “B” have a virtual copy created in the Collection. Additional virtual copies can link to the original or to a virtual copy, those are two different workflows.
